CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: Forestry Industry Worker Representative Injury Prevention Programme Steering Committee

A joint programme to help keep forestry workers safe is looking for two experienced forestry workers to provide workers’ perspectives on health and safety. The group’s goal is to reduce NZ forestry’s accident rate.

The group features representatives from ACC, forest owners and contractors, forestry workers, the Council of Trade Unions, and WorkSafe NZ.

We need workers that have been around for long enough that they can tell us how the industry works and what does and doesn’t work on the job. We need one from the North Island and one from the South Island.

It will be funded by ACC, who will cover travel costs and pay up to $300 a day when attending meetings or conference calls.

You’ll need to attend regular meetings (mostly in Wellington), give input and feedback and talk to other workers to get their views. We need people with plenty of experience (especially in harvesting), have had a range of different jobs in the industry, take health and safety seriously and can represent workers and speak confidently on their behalf.

If you would like more information, would like to apply or want to nominate somebody, you can find out more information here.

Nominations close at 4pm, 28 February 2014.
