Occupational Safety and Health is
investigating the death of a worker in central Auckland on
Greig Charles Kennedy (40) died after falling
through a skylight window on top of the YMCA building. Mr
Kennedy and a co-worker were fixing lights on the building.
It appears Mr Kennedy slipped, and held on with his hands
for a moment and then crashed through a skylight, fell one
storey to the ground level. He was taken to hospital but
died on arrival.
Scoop understands Mr Kennedy was wearing
a safety harness. His co-worker was un-injured. The oSH

Commerce Commission: Retail Fuel "Not As Competitive As It Could Be"
The Commission has outlined some options it considers could improve competition. There are two broad sets of options it thinks may have the potential to help create a competitive wholesale market. These are:
• Greater contractual freedom to make it easier for resellers to switch between suppliers; and
• Enabling wider participation in the majors’ joint infrastructure, notably the shared terminals and supporting logistics involved in their borrow-and-loan system.
Further options, including improving the transparency of premium petrol prices, are discussed in the draft report. More>>
