||Summer 1999, Vol.30, No.2, p.123-131. Illus. 18 ref.
||A voluntary accident reporting scheme is described which has been used to identify the requirements for, and monitor the effectiveness of, interventions within the New Zealand logging industry. Two examples are used: the development of chainsaw cut-resistant legwear, and determinination of the most appropriate color for high visibility clothing. The underlying rationale for each intervention is described and the effectiveness of the intervention is evaluated, based on data drawn from the accident reporting scheme. Topics: case study; chain saws; forestry and logging; leg protection; New Zealand; notification of occupational accidents; protective clothing; visibility.
