A judge has criticised the company for seeking more court time to dispute facts before entering a plea in a prosecution brought after workers were placed at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in the Otira tunnel in November 2013.

Puketi Logging

Fined $25,000 and ordered to pay reparation of $75,000 after a 19-year-old employee was killed near Taneatua when he was struck by a log attached to a harvest-line hauler that had snagged on an obstruction and rebounded into him. The private prosecution under the HSE Act was brought by the NZ Council of Trade Unions.

M&A Cross Ltd

Fined $25,000 and ordered to pay reparation of $105,000 after an employee was struck and killed by a log on a skid site in a forest near Kinleith. This was also a private prosecution brought by the NZCTU.
