Rehabilitating workers back into the forest

In HT 027, Video by FIEALeave a Comment

Gisborne contractors Gavin and Chrystal Edmonds are helping forestry workers recover from drug problems and get back to work in the forest. Difficulties accessing rehabilitation support for workers prompted the couple, who run Stirling Logging, to start bringing workers into their own home to help them recover.

Gavin and Chrystal say they’re motivated by a desire to help workers who want to change – who they consider to be good people who’ve made bad choices. They also say forestry can’t afford to lose experienced workers to drugs when there is such a shortage of skilled workers.
