WorkSafe’s Research and Evaluation team was established early in 2014 and a programme of work is underway.
Here you’ll find our research and evaluation reports. You can also browse earlier research on the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment’s website.
Understanding how attitudes and behaviours contribute to injury and harm in New Zealand workplaces is key to improving health and safety practices so everyone comes home healthy and safe.
In 2016, WorkSafe undertook research to look at the forestry sector and examine changes in practice since 2013. The research involved looking at injury data, interviews and focus groups with forestry owners, contractors and their crews, and interviews with WorkSafe staff. The research produced seven substantive reports and one summary.
