    Taking a stand for safe workplaces - Scoop.co.nz (press release), New Zealand
    Workers and their employers are being challenged to take workplace health and safety seriously in a bid to reduce the huge toll of workplace accidents and injuries.

    Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union national secretary Andrew Little said that while some excellent work was being done, 65 New Zealanders had lost their lives this year in workplace accidents and hundreds more had been injured.

    “All of us – workers and employers – must work together if we are going to bring down this appalling toll of death and injury,” he said.
