Alert: Notifications and correspondence during COVID-19 restrictions

We are operating at reduced capacity due to the COVID 19 Alert Level Two requirements. Find out more about how to correspond and notify us during this time.

You might also hear from us as we proactively call businesses about how they're operating safely during Alert Level Two. 

Many construction tasks, tools and equipment produce high noise levels. Exposure to these noise levels can lead to temporary or permanent hearing loss.

We have produced guidance about managing noise exposure in construction.
