COVID-19

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
Education sector
Health and disability sector
Prison workers
NZ Police
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.

Click here to complete a health and safety role risk assessment as required for businesses who are not mandated and wish to request employees are vaccinated. Choose whether to have it reviewed by us here at SaferKiwis to assess whether vaccinated employees are required for a low price of $50+GST or we will send you your completed assessment version for free!
