New guidelines for workers in the road corridor

Guidelines based on the National Code and the Guide for Safety with Underground Services are available now electronically.

Entitled Think safe, Work safe and Go home safe, the guidelines are designed for the worker out on the road or in the trench. Training materials will be available at the end of October, when printed copies of the guidelines are available as a handbook.

NZUAG wishes to thank the many people who contributed to the content of the handbook, particularly the NZ Contractors Federation and PowerCo who invested many hours to ensure the content net the needs of contractors and utility operators respectively. Design work was provided by John McDonald Graphic Designer of Park View Motorcamp, printing by NZ Print.

Sponsorship was gratefully received from Christchurch City Council and NZ Contractors Federation in 2012 which facilitated the start of the project, and sponsorship from Auckland Transport, BeforeUDig, Chorus, NZ Transport Agency, PowerCo and Watercare has assisted the design work. NZUAG thanks all the sponsors for their support and commitment to the project.

Pre-ordered printed copies will be dispatched late October, while printed copies will be available for sale from 1 November while stocks last.

Hard copies of the handbook can be obtained while stocks last by emailing
