LA Times story on lessons learnt from Christchurch earthquakes

LA Times story on lessons learnt from Christchurch earthquakes

Rong-Gong Lin, a reporter who has worked on earthquake news at the Los Angeles Times for nearly a decade, recently visited Christchurch and spoke to a number of people, including Tracy Hatton, to learn more about the lessons California can learn from Christchurch.  As he notes in his story, Christchurch bears a distinct resemblance to California cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, sharing similar building codes, architectural styles and proximity to major faults and can help educate Californians on what we might to expect when the next earthquake hits one of their cities.

Ron wrote three stories featured in the paper.

We are excited to have been awarded a grant under the New Zealand EQC Biennial Grants programme.

Tracy Hatton will be leading a team of researchers looking at how organisations perceive their obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and what they actually do to reduce earthquake impacts on their organisation and employees. The project will also look at identifying ways in which policy and legislation can be better leveraged to encourage behaviour change to improve New Zealand’s resilience to disaster.
