Why are farmers treated differently by WorkSafe? If an 'accident' happens at work in ports or forestry (or any other industry), the company will be prosecuted for not providing a safe work environment. 
If companies allow kids to enter the workplace and expose them to unsafe conditions, they can get hefty fines. Why is a farm being treated differently? If farmers continue to die because they use quad bikes beyond the design limits for the machine, they are at fault. If it is a farm worker, the farmer should be prosecuted. 'Poor farmer' will be the public outcry perhaps, but 'she'll be right' may have worked when farm work was mainly carried out on foot or a slow tractor. It doesn't work with modern machinery. That requires decent training and control on unauthorized use. (Kids not allowed on 'tools' and workers not until properly trained).
A 14-year-old boy died in Kaikohe early this morning after the quad bike he was riding rolled into a ditch.

Seems government departments, and especially Worksafe, don't have the balls to take on the farming community on any subject.

This is wrong in so many ways.
In the name of Christianity millions, if not billions, of people have been murdered, whether it was by followers of the movement or those against it.
By pitching Christianity against other religious movements as being better or something to be proud of, you create further divide.
Religion is something you 'believe'. You can't be sure until you're dead. Is that a reason to help speeding up the process for those that believe something different?  

Cameron says Britain should 'feel proud that this is a Christian country' as he hails Church a 'living, active force for good'
Daily Mail Online
David Cameron has hailed the Church as a "living active force doing great works" for the poor and homeless in an Easter message which urged Britain to be 'proud' of the country's Christian roots.

It's not a secret, but those that could make a difference rather sweep it under the carpet and leave it there. Perhaps Fish and Games should take them to court in a test case under the HSNO Act. Run-off from farms, whether effluents or nutrients, are covered by that Act. So is other fertiliser such as phosphor. Those products are either produced on farms (effluent) or used on farms. In both cases, they can only to be released into the environment AFTER treatment. So, whoever has run-off that exceeds the set threshold for the chemicals in it, is in breach of the HSNO Act. Enforcement does not want to touch it as it is too politically sensitive. Someone with a vested interest and sufficient backing can make them change their minds.

"I'm sick of my rights being legislated away because some group in society can't act responsibly!!!!"

I'm sick of the alcohol-fuelled fights
I'm sick of the vomit on the foot paths
I'm sick of the broken bottles
I'm sick of people not being able to control themselves, because of alcohol
I'm sick of having to fear for my life when walking through the inner city

That is 5 to 1. Doesn't the majority count?

If this is considered a sport, why is there often so much hype about (extreme) nude hiking, even to the point that you can be prosecuted?

It shows that shifting money to the rich through non-taxed speculative 'investment' in housing, driving up the subsidized rents of beneficiaries and low income families, is not paying off. Perhaps it is really time to curb that tax-free 'investment' in housing by speculators (and foreign companies), creating some relieve for the lower and middle incomes, who have been taking the brunt of the Government's drive to balance the books.   
A drop in GST, which was $261 million lower than forecast for February, is contributing to the Government's finances slipping back into a deficit of $269 million in the eight months to February

Bob should get his slippery fingers out of these issues. None of his business. Not everybody has the same believes he has and it is not up to him to 'dictate'. Stick with your own Bob. Make them be the best possible persons in the world, with no blemish or 'wrong' thoughts, before you try to lecture everyone else. It is ridiculous that you have to drown yourself in the river if you want to decide when it is your time to go.

Clinton recalled the days after 9/11 when as a Senator from New York, she lobbied President George W. Bush in the Oval Office for aid to New York. “President Bush looked at us and said, ‘What do you need?’ And I said, ‘We need $20 billion to rebuild New York Mr. President.’ And he said, ‘You got it.’ I will never forget that,” Clinton recalled.

HaHaHa. G. W. Bush had just received the message that the gold and money stashed under the TWC had been successfully 'recovered' for sharing purposes amongst his friends. Of course he could be generous.

Introduction
My work involves trying to keep people safe by promoting a safety-conscious approach to what ever we do, including the handling of dangerous goods (or hazardous substances as they are called in New Zealand). I prefer to enjoy nature without a (wet) piece of textile around part of my body. I try to do my bit in protecting the environment by not leaving my rubbish behind and most of the time collecting a bag or two of rubbish from the beach before going home.
