Covid-19 - Mining - Essential Services?
WorkSafe received a number of enquiries from High Hazard duty holders asking the question if their sites are "Essential Services".
Last week we saw Waihi Gold mine shut down due to Covid-19, not wanting to risk workers and the community. Yet other mines around the country are continuing to operate?
WorkSafe have left it to duty holders to work it out for themselves referring them to their website for further information.
