Alert: Notifications at reduced capacity during COVID-19 restrictions
We are operating at reduced capacity due to the COVID 19 alert level four requirements.
Please only call our 0800 number if someone is at serious risk of harm or has been seriously injured, become seriously ill, or died as a result of work.
For other notifications please complete our online forms at Notify WorkSafe.
You must provide WorkSafe with 24 hours notice of work that is particularly hazardous.
Notification of particular hazardous work
The Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995(external link) require employers as well as the person who controls a place of work to provide at least 24 hours notice to WorkSafe of particularly hazardous work.
Notifications of hazardous work assist WorkSafe's workplace health and safety services to plan workplace visits to promote the prevention of harm to all persons at, or in the vicinity of, a place of work.
Note: It is no longer possible to notify us via emailed or posted PDF forms. The online notification form has been updated to reflect all the particular hazardous works that must be notifed to us.
The Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995(external link) require an employer as well as the person who controls a place of work to notify WorkSafe of certain work that is more than usually dangerous before it is started.
