Health and safety

Farming is one of the most dangerous jobs in New Zealand. Health and Safety is one of the most important areas, if not the most important area for the deer farm as a work place.  

Health and Safety is a topic relevant to every farm, whether the worker is a self-employed farmer, an employee engaged by the landowner or tenant, a contractor engaged by the landowner or tenant. The landowner or tenant also owes a duty of care to visitors to the farm.
