Free horse safety advice

Managing risks when new or inexperienced riders or handlers interact with horses in the workplaceSafeWork NSW are running free presentations across NSW on their new Code of Practice – Managing risks when new or inexperienced riders or handlers interact with horses in the workplace which aims to provide safety advice to people who work with or around horses.

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.
