    A friend lost, kia kaha Nelson

    Very sad that today a very close friend of mine lost one of his workmates. There was an accident at Waimea Sawmill today. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of this man. Kia kaha Nelson whanau, it's a very sudden and tragic loss. This young man was a very giving and loving guy. RIP mate. Taken too soon.

    My thoughts are with the family. Workplace accidents shouldn't occur but sadly they do. It is always a tragedy when this sort of thing happens to one so young.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    This terrible accident and the resulting talk around work(its close to my work) has got me thinking about our Health and Safety system in NZ.

    Within a 1km radius of my work there are many businesses and I work on most of there sites as well as many others further afield .

    Any national business(or global for that matter) there HS systems are that over the top that a half hour job with very low risk may take 4 to 8 or even more hours to complete (admittedly I do work in high risk environments)
    But I still get paid my boss gets paid and this gets passed on to someone.(inevitably the tax payer)
    And yet these company's still kill there employees or contractors with alarming regularity.

    And then there is the complete opposite of the scale where you are looked at funny when you suggest that the log beak on that loader is past the point of repair the metal is fatigued and worn to thin it needs rebuilding.

    When not if it breaks and kills someone who is responsible? not the company owner director manager or what ever he is ,it will be the certified engineer who repaired it.

    So where is the middle ground?

    Our local businesses our local/national and our local/global businesses still get it wrong and kill people just earning a wage.

    +1 there Cam, I have witnessed many of those "wtf, she'll be right" moments when someone has pointed out something clearly wrong.

    My friend is in a bit of a state (as is understandable) so I have not yet gotten all the full details but I can definately say that what the news has reported isn't what happened. I'm sure you know. Are you close to Waimea? I've been down there a few times, Nelson is a small town when it comes down to it.

    Still very sad huh

    I'd need a factory bow to get that far from me.

    Very sad day...
