Documents released yesterday have highlighted the impact of
University of Otago inaction over safety issues, detailing
injuries from broken arms to a fractured jaw, smashed teeth
and a fractured spine.
A guilty plea by the University of Otago in a health and
safety case has led to $60,000 reparation for a woman left
permanently disabled, and a promise to fix a building the
Dunedin District Court heard had caused serious injury.
