Special Investigators - TV Series

Special Investigators logo. A reality series on TV one gives New Zealanders the chance to experience the work that goes on behind the scenes of workplace incidents and investigations. This series is a timely reminder to New Zealand that health and safety is no joke.

Special Investigators follows workplace health and safety inspectors for the Department of Labour, Civil Aviation Authority and Maritime New Zealand going about their daily business, and showcases the variety of hazards people can encounter in the workplace.

Viewers will get to see the depth of investigations that go on when someone is killed or injured at work - something they would never normally experience - and they may be surprised how much work goes on in determining what went wrong, and ensuring lessons are learnt from these incidents.

All of the serious workplace incidents could have been avoided. A case study on each episode is provided below with links to relevant safety information.
