Print NZ outlines ‘Level 2 Rules for Business’ as industry reopens

As New Zealand companies start to resume business, industry association Print NZ outlines ‘Level 2 Rules for Business’ for the industry:

1. The workplace health and safety protocols introduced at Level 3 should remain in place at Level 2, however safe working distances can be reduced to 1 metre instead of 2 metres.

2. Staff returning to the workplace that have been working from home up until now will need to be inducted into those practices.

3. High-risk workers (based on medical conditions/age) are able to return to work if they agree with their employer that they are safe to do so. Employers need to communicate with these people to identify risks and ways to manage them.

4. Customers can now come to premises, but businesses must have contact tracing in place and maintain a distance of at least 1 metre.

5. Workers are able to travel on public transport again, including air travel.  Make sure protocols are in place for staff that travel, to keep them safe.  Ensure that staff are communicated to and provide them with any PPE they feel they might want to protect themselves.

6. Continue to stress that everyone - workers, contractors and customers - with cold or flu-like symptoms should stay away from your premises.

7. Continue to involve your workers in identifying health and safety risks and how they can best be managed.

8. Limit the number of shared surfaces, and regularly disinfect them.

9. Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands!

10. Continue to do everything you can to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at work. As people extend their personal bubbles into much wider groups, businesses need to ensure their workplace bubble is not compromised.
