Shearing shed safety

SA wool producers & shed workers wanted

Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) is providing funding to the WA Shearing Industry Association (WASIA) to develop a National Shearing Shed Safety Assessment Program to assist in improving conditions for those working in shearing sheds and improve compliance with modern workplace standards to reduce risk and injuries and to reduce insurance and worker’s compensation claims.

The first step in the Shed Safety Assessment Program is the release of two key industry surveys – one aimed at those that work in shearing sheds and the other survey aimed at woolgrowers and shed owners.

For further information and links to the survey go to the WASIA website
