Workplace Health and Safety

Workplace Health and Safety

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (The Act) applies to all workplaces in New Zealand – including farms.

To meet your obligations under The Act, you must take all practicable steps to provide and keep a safe work environment. This includes identifying risks and finding practical ways to manage hazards.

For information on how to satisfy obligations under the legislation WorkSafe New Zealand has produced a comprehenisve guide for deer farms.  Click on this link - http://saferfarms.org.nz/guides/safe-deer-handling
