If you are keen to be part of contributing to an Industry initiative and have any of the above information you can share, please get in touch.

Site Markings Initiative
A WorkSafe New Zealand initiative delivered by ShopCare:
ShopCare will be conducting an initiative on behalf of WorkSafe NZ which will provide recommendations on standardisations of site markings. This work will include a review of relevant regulations/standards in addition to recommendations developed with input from industry.
The purpose of this project is to provide WorkSafe with detailed recommendations for standardised site markings which WorkSafe can use to inform a good practice guide
We are particularly interested in hearing from businesses and individuals who either operate, run or work at fixed sites where mobile plant is operating that are able to share (anonymously if preferred) current/planned site marking practices. We are also interested in engaging with business who supply site marking services.
Consultation will be ongoing, and we welcome contact at any time however most formal consultation will occur between January and August 2022. The initiative will be submitted to WorkSafe by 1st October 2022. Read more
