About

Safetree™ is your one-stop resource to find the safety information you need to do your jobs safely and without injury.

Jointly funded by ACC and the forestry industry, Safetree™ is part of the Government’s commitment to reducing serious harm and fatalities in New Zealand’s workplaces by 25% by 2020.
