Lessons for everyone in building site closures

The closure of building sites in Auckland for poor safety and other employment conditions is a necessary though unfortunate step, says David Lowe, Employment Services Manager for EMA (Northern).

"Everyone can learn from this," Mr Lowe said.

"Safety is a basic condition of the workplace where there can be no short cuts.

"We do not condone breaches of the law; safety regulations are particularly important.

"But those who make the rules should see that some businesses are overloaded with compliance to the point of just giving up.

"There are people who can help get these work sites back in business quickly and within the law. The EMA is available to do this. They should phone 0800 800 362."
