WorkSafe NZ response to the independent forestry safety review

The forestry industry has set up an Independent Forestry Safety Review to consider ways of bringing down the high death and injury toll on workers in our forests. The review presented a discussion document for stakeholder feedback and WorkSafe New Zealand has responded.

The WorkSafe NZ response describes the regulator’s view of the current issues in the industry, proposes that an industry-led Safer Forests Blueprint for Action should be developed, and describes the role WorkSafe will play in addressing the death and injury toll.
