He Ringa Raupa: Maori Sawmill Workers Report
Existing reports provide ample evidence of the health impacts of chemicals used in the sawmill industry.
This report is a review of existing literature on involuntary chemical exposure to Maori. It is one section of a larger research project called: Health, Cultural and Social Experiences of Maori who Believe They Have Been Affected by Chemical Related Illness, undertaken by Te Atawhai O Te Ao: Independent Maori Institute for Environment and Health. This was a two year research project 2006-2008 funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand.
