WorkSafe New Zealand has agreed that holders of a lifetime A-grade quarry manager’s certificate of competence (CoC) may, upon application, be granted a B-grade quarry manager’s CoC.

They will need to hold unit standard 26856 (Carry out the risk management processes at an extractive site), a current first aid certificate and be a fit and proper person.

The CoC is granted under the 2016 Regulations and, therefore, is subject to all the requirements in the regulations such as the 5-year term of the CoC and CPD requirements.

The New Zealand Gazette amendment is available here.(external link)
