NZ Roadworkers Reflect on Health and Safety

In an effort to highlight health and safety in the road construction industry, roading contractors in New Zealand temporarily downed tools for the “Pause for Health and Safety Day” initiative, aimed at refocusing on creating safer work environments.

In February there had been 4 deaths at road construction sites which prompted the pause, the NZ Transport Agency said.

The “Pause for Health and Safety Day” involved all agency staff and industry workers stopping work from 8am to 12pm to focus on creating safer working environments and eradicating workplace accidents.

Although health and safety is the industry’s top priority and strict policies do exist to ensure safety, it is important to never become complacent. Downing tools is one way to refocus people on health and safety.
