  • In November 2016, we issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the delivery of a New Zealand Workforce Survey of self-reported occupational exposures. The purpose of the survey was to gather information across all industry groups and occupations in the NZ workforce to establish the prevalence of a wide range of occupational risk factors.

    The Centre for Public Health Research (CPHR) proposed a two-fold strategy to address the RFP requirements including:

    1. a comprehensive report involving new analyses from two large existing workforce surveys conducted by CPHR in 2004-2006 and 2009-2010; and
    2. a?worker exposure survey in seven targeted occupational groups.

    Worker Exposure Survey Report – Part 1

    All data presented in part 1 are based on the only two NZ general population workforce surveys that collected information on self-reported occupational exposures: the New Zealand Workforce Survey (NZWS; 3,003 participants from the general population) and the Māori NZWS (2,107 participants from the Māori general population). These workforce surveys were conducted by CPHR in 2004-2006 and 2009-2010, respectively.

    Worker Exposure Survey Report – Part 2

    The Part 2 Report provides worker exposure data for the following occupational groups:

    • community-based nurses
    • collision repair workers
    • construction workers
    • hospitality workers
    • clerical workers
    • sawmill workers
    • agricultural workers.

    These occupational groups were chosen so we could cover the full range of occupational exposures (biological, physical, ergonomic, chemical, psychosocial risk factors).
