Free Horse Safety Workshop

SafeWork NSW is running a free workshop at Richmond TAFE College on Wednesday July 4th from 10am, aiming to provide safety advice to people who work with or around horses.

Would you know what to do in this situation?

The workshop will cover the NSW Government’s new Code of Practice – Managing risks when new or inexperienced riders or handlers interact with horses in the workplace.

The code was developed for people who work with horses, with the message ”be aware of the risks and plan ahead to keep your workers and others safe”.

One paid worker and ten other people are hospitalised each day in Australia due to a horse related injury.

These injures often occur at workplaces like farms, race tracks, riding schools and trail riding businesses.

Falls from a horse are the most common cause of horse-related fatal injuries.

Come along and take this opportunity to learn more about work health and safety and the code of practice.

Qualifying small businesses who send a staff member to these workshops will also be eligible for a small business rebate of up to $500.

Small businesses who attend the workshops can also obtain information and an application form for a safety rebate to purchase eligible items for safety solutions.

Register for this FREE workshop by phoning the Australian Racing and Equine Academy on 1800 200 724.
