Abstract

‘Otago University Medical students R. Croxson and M. Goddard pulled no punches in describing the grisly eye injuries suffered by workers in the Dunedin Foreshore Industrial area in 1959. Their dissertation covered the health and safety precautions available in various metal working processes. Their main finding was that most of the workers did not wear safety goggles despite their high-risk employment. Unsurprisingly, they found that although numerous men experienced eye injuries few heeded this lesson and wore protective equipment. This dissertation is valuable as it displays the shifting attitude of everyday workers to health and safety from almost sixty years ago to now.’ Item chosen by Caitlin McDougall, student
