The above graph (click to enlarge) shows that from July 2017 to July 2018

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Transport, Postal and Warehousing

were the top three industries in the South Auckland region who reported notifiable incidents to WorkSafe NZ.  

The main incidents reported across these three industries were:

  • fall or release from height of any plant, substance or thing
  • electric shock
  • collapse, overturning, failure or malfunction of, or damage to any plant that must be authorised for use, and others.

The graph below (click to enlarge) shows a similar trend for all of Auckland during the same time period.

Given the nature of each of these industries, it is no surprise that they are at the top of the list.

Here at Baderdrive Doctors we are able to take care of such acute accidents and injuries should they occur.  

We offer priority processing, expert medical attention, injury management and rehabilitation, including feedback to work place (e.g. alternative duties).

"The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) requires that WorkSafe is notified if someone has been exposed to a serious and immediate risk of harm because of a workplace incident."
