    7 times more work accidents in NZ than the UK? Sheesh!
     
    Mix of problems: legislation, culture, work place systems, contracting out of labour, overwork, stress, fatigue, lack of representation, lack of voice.
     
    Public need to provide insights, information, participation in the Strategic Review of the workplace Health and Safety System.
     
    I can’t think of any immediate problems in my workplace.  It’s more likely to be RSI issues.

    Step one. Get rid of/replace OSH. That org. only does anything after serious shit has hit the fan. Bloody useless.

      Yep Helen Kelly is a darling with brains, heart and passion. NZ is lucky to have this woman and I’d vote for her to be PM.
