At NZ Crane Hire we have been working on our safety protocols taking guidance from key Construction Industry bodies to ensure we have been safe to work for essential services under level four and going into level three.
We have developed our processes from information at the official COVID-19 website and from the Resources prepared by the Construction Industry and published on Sitesafe's website. These protocols have been developed by industry representative groups SiteSafe, Construction Health & Safety NZ, Master Builders and Civil Contractors.
As the situation has been constantly changing we have adapted our processes to stay in line with Government Guidance and the Construction Industry's best practice.
Links to the live documents we are working to are detailed below.
The nature of our services means that we are invariably coming to our customers sites and therefore will work with the specific requirements of each site, provided that the Risk Management Controls meet or exceed our own. If they do not then we will operate as best we practicably can to meet or exceed the industry protocols.
We have inducted all of our staff on Basic Risk Management controls for COVID-19 through our online Learning Management System. This tool has also collected baseline contact tracing information for everyone's personal bubbles and it has been used to ensure understanding of our Risk Management Controls for COVID-19.
