Participate in research studies

Worker Exposure Survey

Aged between 20 and 64. Employed as farmers who apply pesticides, collision repair workers, construction workers, sawmill workers, hospitality workers, clerical workers or nurses.

We are conducting an important study to learn more about occupational exposures and workplace practices in selected occupational groups in the New Zealand workforce. We are doing the survey so that effective interventions may be developed to prevent work-related disease and injury. Participation will involve a 30 to 45 minute telephone interview.
