COVID-19 Safety Plans and COVID Safe registration
Having a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place will help you fulfil your obligations under Public Health Orders to minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19.
We have developed COVID-19 Safety Plan templates for specific industries.
If your business does not fit within one of these specific industries, it is still recommended you have a plan. Having a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place will help to protect your staff, workers, customers and visitors.
Complete the plan in consultation with staff, then share it with them.
Businesses and organisations should also consider the benefits of registering as COVID Safe.
Keep your plan up to date
You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.
Have an up to date plan at your premises at all times.
