Fairfax Temporarily Moves Operations From Putararu Printing Plant
Fairfax New Zealand has temporarily moved operations from its Putararu printing plant following complaints by some members of the staff of unpleasant odours in the workplace and feeling unwell.
Brian Ashton, group operations manager, Fairfax New Zealand said: “We have been in regular consultation with OSH and other Government agencies and undertaken extensive tests but as yet we have been unable to identify the cause of the problem.”
“Our primary concern is the health and safety of the Fairfax employees so the decision was made in consultation with the workforce to temporarily move operations while further investigation is undertaken by a group of independent consultants.”
In the interim printing has been moved to other Fairfax plants.
