This Technical advice note is to advise of updates to NZ Transport Agency ConstructSafe Tier 1 accreditation requirements.
From 1 October 2017, all workers, without exception, are required to achieve ConstructSafe Tier 1 accreditation prior to undertaking construction work on Transport Agency networks or assets.
All workers working in or on Transport Agency construction sites or the state highway corridor are required to have achieved a current ConstructSafe Tier 1 Accreditation. This could mean sites where construction is taking place and work is in the form of investigation, enabling, main construction or defects management, or where maintenance activities are being undertaken.
The requirement applies to:
Design activities conducted off site are not included, for example computer aided design work.
Visitors to physical work sites, or third parties undertaking delivery or collection in or on the site, are not required to have ConstructSafe Tier 1 accreditation. Such activities are subject to site visitor protocols which includes being escorted at all times by competent and authorised project representatives.
Workers from third party asset owners (for example, utilities) may be required to have ConstructSafe Tier 1 accreditation. This is dependent on the nature of the relationship and the work being undertaken.
