This is the second whistleblower nurse I’ve watched, here is a link to the other. Horrific detail described by this nurse who has a conscience she’s unable to fully exercise amidst a scene of total mayhem. When she tries to advocate for her patient, the patient is taken from her & she is moved. Read more at the link below the video. Watch before it’s taken down. EWR

A follow up-article from Kapiti Independent News on the 1080 fire in Levin. Part 1 is here.
We first reported on this event in Levin on Feb 22nd & again on March 8th. At the time it was being discussed on a Facebook 1080 forum, a man reported the health effects he had been experiencing. I did exchange words with him then, inquiring further of his experience however he stopped responding to my messages. EnvirowatchRangitikei

Where a substantial amount of hazardous substances are stored, the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 state that it is the responsibility of the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), to ensure that a full risk assessment is carried out by Fire & Emergency NZ.
Outcomes from these risk assessments include ensuring that
- crucial signage is erected around the storage areas
- safe drainage facilities are available to prevent contamination of waterways.
In theory, these formalised procedures are overseen by the local District Health Board’s Chief Medical Officer, who, in the event of a fire or other emergency such as an earthquake, assess the risks to nearby residents and workers from any toxic smoke and fumes and if necessary, instigate the pre-arranged evacuation plan.
