Post-project research on the Focus on Industry: Tree Work project
Client: SafeWork NSW
Project duration: 3 months
The Focus on Industry (FOI): Tree Work project was conducted between March 2017 and June 2018 by SafeWork NSW in partnership with NSW Fair Trading and the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA). The project included communication and educational activities, such as a visit program, to raise awareness and promote an understanding of safety in conducting tree work services within the industry.
ZEST Health Strategies was engaged by SafeWork NSW to conduct post-project research to seek to understand the reach and effectiveness of the Tree Work project, as well as understand changes to the industry’s knowledge, attitude and capabilities before and after the project’s completion.
A report presenting the key findings from the research was produced, and included a series of recommendations for consideration in supporting the development of similar projects by SafeWork NSW in the future.
