Aftermath - How the Lives of Fifteen Ordinary New Zealanders have been affected by Workplace Injury and Illness
A booklet that presents, in a shortened form, the case histories featured in the "Aftermath - The Social and Economic Consequences of Workplace Injury and Illness" study and concentrates on the human and personal dimension, omitting the detailed social and economic analyses of the full report.
No one person experiences, sees or accounts for the full consequences of a workplace injury or illness. The full extent of costs and consequences are often not measured or recorded in any official statistic. Often they are not recorded anywhere. Employees who are harmed will inevitably bear the brunt of the consequences themselves, as other people cannot fully understand the degree of pain or isolation that they may experience. The costs and consequences to family, friends and work colleagues often go unrecorded and unobserved as well, although they are nonetheless real. Many consequences cannot be measured directly as an economic or other cost, such as a loss of intimacy between spouses, or the breakdown of a family unit due to an unexpected death.
