Health and Safety Plan

Implementing a Health and Safety Plan during construction is essential to ensure a safe work environment. Unless you have chosen a labour-only procurement route, it is usually the builder’s responsibility to complete the plan, update it during the process and maintain a safe site. However, all parties are obligated under New Zealand health and safety law to be familiar with the contents of the Health and Safety Plan, and know how to act in the case of an emergency. The Health and Safety Plan should address:
  • the person responsible for health and safety on site
  • identification and control of potential hazards
  • posting of notices and warnings of potential hazards
  • guidance on ensuring a safe working environment at all times
  • instructions on safe methods and practices
  • provision for safety meetings
  • recording and investigation of accidents.​
