The following description was taken from WorkSafe: Managing vehicle-related risks from supply chain pressures
Workplace vehicle-related harm is a growing area of focus in New Zealand. Given the wide ranging and complex arrangements of vehicle use within supply chains, a ‘system’ approach is needed to determine solutions that are most likely to address the context that drives harm, and hence have the greatest chance of being effective. This project involved an evidentially based investigation of approaches to managing risks across the supply chain, with attention given specifically to Transport, Postal, Warehousing, and Manufacturing within the New Zealand context. Using a highly participatory research method, the project 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 agencies. This report concludes with 13 system focused recommendations to minimise vehicle-related harm across supply chains.
