Construction remains on of New Zealand’s most dangerous jobs, NZ Herald reports, and a spate of injuries on construction sites has again drawn attention to the danger of working in this industry. NZ Herald property editor Anne Gibson says the injuries seen recently have been quite horrific. “A man had his arms amputated after high-voltage electrocution. Five people were hurt in a gas cylinder explosion. One man was shot through the heart with a nail gun.” Despite the biggest construction firms in the country taking safety seriously, Gibson says there’s definitely a broad spectrum of safety protocols across the country’s building sites.
