COVID-19 has brought trying times for so many of us, here we aim to make navigating COVID-19 requirements as easy as possible, with a few great places to start:
Health and Safety Assessment
Businesses who are not mandated and would like work to be done by vaccinated employees need to complete a risk assessment. If the risk assessment identifies this is necessary for work health and safety purposes and the nature of the work itself raises the risk of COVID-19 infection and transmission above the risk faced outside work, then the business can request employees are vaccinated.
Current sectors and business types where COVID-19 vaccinations are mandatory:
Border and managed isolation and quarantine workers
Health and disability sector
NZ Defence Force
Workers covered by the My Vaccine Pass mandate — hospitality, events, close-contact businesses and gyms. The mandate also applies to on-site tertiary education when Red settings are in place.
