The first provides brief advice on one page and is aimed at contractors, clients, principals, home owners and landlords about contractors requirements to ensure the right safety steps are in place before the work starts. The information sheet is dual purposed.

a. Where the Labour Group has agreement with local authorities, it is being included in the residential building consent information packs.

b. Individual duty holders can use the information sheet to support their quotes to clients.
