The new Pike River Recovery Agency has been launched, with a brief to re-enter the mine's drift by March 2019.

The Press reports on the opening, noting the agency's brief is to re-enter the mine's drift by March 2019.

The Business Leaders' Health & Safety Forum sounded a note of caution, warning that the re-entry needs to respect the legislation enacted as a result of the mine disaster.

“The Health and Safety at Work Act offers workers protections that weren’t there for the men killed at Pike,” says Forum executive director Francois Barton in a press release. “The new agency provides an important opportunity for these protections to be underlined, not undermined.”
