Sawmill death

Rotorua Daily Post - - Nation -

The per­son who died from a work­place ac­ci­dent near Master­ton yes­ter­day morn­ing was a fe­male staff mem­ber at a sawmill. The woman was a mem­ber of the team at Kiwi Lum­ber on Nor­man Ave, Wain­gawa. Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the ad­dress at 8.35am. WorkSafe NZ was to be no­ti­fied. Kiwi Lum­ber spokes­woman Liz Read said it was a “dev­as­tat­ing day for the team” and for ev­ery­one in the busi­ness. “The team are en­tirely fo­cused on sup­port­ing the fam­ily and the peo­ple who were with her at the time of the ac­ci­dent,” she said. “It’s just an ex­traor­di­nar­ily tragic ac­ci­dent.” Carter­ton Mayor John Booth said any death in the com­mu­nity was a tragedy, whether in the work­place, on the roads, or some other way.
