Proactive calling 

We are making proactive calls to businesses to check how they are operating safely during Alert Level Two, whether they have a safety plan in place, and that they are engaging with their workers on work health and safety. Our callers will be asking a few basic questions and reminding businesses of their responsibilities.

Please only call our 0800 number if someone is at serious risk of harm or has been seriously injured, become seriously ill, or died as a result of work.
