NSW Code of Practice - Risk management for new or inexperienced horse handlers

Notice to Trainer Employers, Race Club Employers, Industry Employers and Industry Participants – SafeWork NSW Code of Practice

SafeWork NSW has released the NSW Government’s CODE OF PRACTICE – MANAGING RISKS WHEN NEW OR INEXPERIENCED RIDERS OR HANDLERS INTERACT WITH HORSES IN THE WORKPLACE.

SafeWork NSW has previously outlined to Racing NSW the intent of the Code is to provide practical guidance around the work health and safety (WHS) obligations already contained in the WHS legislation.

The Code provides practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), officers, workers and other persons on how to manage the risks likely to be faced by new or inexperienced riders or handlers when interacting with horses in the workplace. It does not cover all hazards or risks that may arise.

Racing NSW recommends that any person riding or handling horses, or engaging persons to ride or handle horses, familiarise themselves with the Code and their WHS responsibilities.
