Christchurch earthquake event update - as at 6pm Sunday 14 February 2016

Our thoughts are with all Christchurch staff after today’s event.

All of our MBIE worksites are open tomorrow (Monday 15 February). However, if your personal situation requires you to be at home then please advise your manager that you will not be in.

MBIE buildings in Christchurch have been sighted by an MBIE manager or staff member and there are no obvious signs of structural damage.  Civil Defence issues advice on whether inspections are required and at this time Civil Defence has not advised that engineering inspections are required.  We will respond to any change in that advice if it arises.

We will be contacting all landlords for our Christchurch buildings to discuss any follow up. 

Support also continues to be available via our Employee Assistance programme - the number is 0800 EAP NOW.  Human Resources will work with Christchurch based managers this week on any further support that is required.

Please continue to monitor this communications channel for further updates.
