We believe the issues are linked – long hours, working in bad weather, pressure to work faster and faster are all making the work too hard and people are getting tired and making mistakes.
Lots of you have told us stories of dangerous work and how you are now working harder and harder for longer and longer. Lots of you have told us that you don’t want to go to any more funerals!
Forestry is the most dangerous industry in NZ and twice and dangerous as Australia and 6 times that of the UK.
There will be lots of other things forest workers want sorted out – we can work these priorities out together.
