THE Beef and Lamb New Zealand Farm Safety Management System Workshop comes to Gisborne next week to give farmers the opportunity to learn more about practical safety risk management on-farm. Registrations are still being taken.

The workshop will be at the Poverty Bay Golf Club from 9.30am-3pm next Thursday, March 2.

B+LNZ farmers will be given a free copy of a safety management system and taught how to apply it to their farm. The system has been developed by the organisation’s safety partner Exigent Risk Management (previously QSI) in conjunction with WorkSafeNZ.

“It has been designed specifically for New Zealand sheep and beef farmers amd it is simple and easy to implement,” says eastern North Island extension manager Mark Harris.

WorkSafeNZ representatives will attend the workshop.

“This will enable attendees to ask WorkSafe questions directly and provide confidence that the information you are getting meets the requirements of the regulator.”

Spaces for next Thursday’s workshop are still available but registration is essential. For more information contact Mark Harris on 027 577 9991.
