This paper describes how a voluntary accident reporting scheme has been used to identify the requirements for, and monitor the effectiveness of interventions within the New Zealand logging industry. Two examples are used: the development of chainsaw cut-resistant legwear, and determinination of the most appropriate color for high visibility clothing. The underlying rationale for each intervention is described and the effectiveness of the intervention is evaluated, based on data drawn from the accident reporting scheme.
