WorkSafe has lifted a prohibition notice in place for almost a year on a timber kiln installed at Pan Pac's mill at Whirinaki in 2014. The notice was put in place after four workers required medical treatment allegedly due to gas emissions from the kiln.

Hawke's Bay Today reports the regulator has lifted the notice because it is satisfied the company has engaged with experts to find the cause of the failure and has taken corrective action to ensure the problem does not happen again.

However the kiln will not be operational until mid-year while the remaining remedial work is carried out.
