MBIE | Meeting health and safety and physical distancing requirements and Creating a COVID-19 control plan

Find out what health and safety measures you must have in place under all COVID-19 Alert Levels.

Under all Alert Levels operating businesses must put appropriate health and safety controls in place, including physical distancing. Every operating business must record details on these measures in a COVID-19 control plan.

One of the control measures is physical distancing – which means keeping one metre between workers on construction sites. Where tradespeople are working in other people’s homes or workplaces, they must stay two metres away from people at the location. Your control plan must also show how you will meet hygiene requirements such as washing hands and equipment and the measures in place to allow for contact tracing.
