Health and Safety
Health and Safety
At RCG our priority is the health and safety of our people, subcontractors, partner organisations, stakeholders and the general public, as we carry out our work.
To ensure a culture of safety and zero harm for all, RCG and our partner organisations have in place comprehensive Health and Safety Management Plans that everyone actively commits to.
RCG, alongside our partner organisations, are continuously focused on managing risks that have the potential to cause harm to our people, landowners or the community. We work to review and improve our health and safety management systems to support safe work practices.
The RCG has been granted Essential Service Status enabling our work to continue as we move through COVID-19 alert levels.
We are committed to working closely with our people, subcontractors, partner organisations and the public to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on our operations and keep everyone safe.
To do this we have:
- Essential Service Status
- Are applying all current Government mandated guidelines regarding Covid-19
- Increased cleaning of site amenities and facilities
- Reducing face-to-face meetings, using online meeting tools where possible and practicing appropriate social distancing measures when face to face meetings do take place.
- Implementing split workforce operating on a week on week off roster in the office environment.
- Additionally, planning for office staff to work remotely where possible and increasing social distancing measures in all offices
- Restricting visitors to our office building
- Reducing all non-essential business travel
- Where we do travel and undertake face to face meetings ensuring we understand the wishes of those we are meeting with and their requirements given the differing alert levels across New Zealand.
- Regular communication with employees reinforcing correct hygiene, self-isolation and social distancing practices.
- Increased focus on mental health support and activities for our people
