Safety Alerts

Accidents and near misses happen. It’s important that when an incident occurs the learnings are shared across the industry. This provides a collaborative approach to Health & Safety and provides real-time safety information.

The safety alert template can be found here. Complete and send to abby.vandeven@nzkgi.org.nz.

Safety alerts will be added to Zespri Canopy and will be circulated to the Kiwifruit Health and Safety Industry Forum. Make sure you add the place where the incident happened and WorkSafe’s involvement.

If you have any further questions about the current safety alerts, please contact Abby Van De Ven.
