WorkSafe New Zealand has commissioned a report from Mackie Research. The report makes a series of recommendations for the wider transport system into how to actively manage supply chain pressures to minimise vehicle-related risks.
The project involved reviews of existing research and initiatives, and intensive engagement with industry stakeholders. It was carried out over 11 months between April 2020 and March 2021 and was designed to build on existing and new programmes of work by industry and New Zealand government agencies.
The report concludes with 13 system focused recommendations to minimise vehicle-related harm across supply chains, which represent a mix of five broad, enabling initiatives, with eight targeting specific areas of focus.
