As the COVID-19 coronavirus spreads, we want to ensure that we’re providing the most accurate and up-to-date information for our members and industry partners. As such, we’ll be taking our lead from Construction Health & Safety New Zealand (CHASNZ) on providing accurate information and suggestions for best practices. Keep an eye out as we’ll be updating this page weekly.
