Newshub – WorkSafe issues Gloriavale businesses with nine warnings over safety failures in less than a year
By Michael Morrah – Newshub – 25/04/2022
WorkSafe issued Gloriavale nine warnings in the space of less than a year over safety failures at its businesses, Newshub can reveal.
Newshub has seen copies of investigators’ notebooks in which one said Gloriavale’s residents had “little to no knowledge” of worker rights.
There were problems with welding fumes, noisy workshops, and dangerous machinery – but Gloriavale’s leader Howard Temple said they’ve made improvements.
The dilapidated offal factory at Gloriavale, where meat waste is ground into meal for export; its dairy and deer farm, honey factory and health food business – all fell short during a series of Worksafe visits in the 10 months to July last year.
