Horticulture New Zealand has received funding from the ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) for a project to look at how we can decrease injuries and deaths in the industry through tools that reflect what happens out in the orchard and vegetable garden.
The first step is to understand the real-life, on the ground picture around how and why injuries and deaths occur. Through this fuller picture, we can begin creating practical tools with industry, for the industry.
