2 stand Shearing Shed

COVID-19 is a respiratory virus that primarily spreads through droplets of an infected person when he or she coughs or sneezes, or through the droplets of saliva. With several hundred thousand of confirmed cases and thousands of deaths in over 200 countries, every country is taking the best measure possible to break the chain, and Australia is no exception.   

However, whatever the situation is, life will go on, and in Australia, shearing too. Being listed as an essential industry under ‘Level 2’ restrictions through the Agricultural business listing, work will continue in shearing during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Fasting Policy for Sheep

9/04/2020 1:12 pm

Fasting Policy for SheepHandling sheep, especially the sheep which are full of feed and water, can cause severe injuries to the shearer. Both farmers and shearing industry personnel have very real concerns regarding the emptying out of sheep before shearing. Farmers worry that prolonged periods off feed before shearing can:

• Affect the growth and development of unborn lambs when ewes are shorn during pregnancy. 

• Cause metabolic problems in ewes when they shorn in late pregnancy. 

• Cause permanent weight loss or reduced growth in lambs when ewes are shorn with lambs at feet.

Shearers and other woolshed staff are concerned that full sheep:

• Add to the already heavy drag-out weight of many ewes. 

• Kick and struggle more during shearing. 

• Cause hazardous conditions in the catching pens and on the shearing board by passing more feces and urine.

Consultation is a legal requirement and a crucial part of managing health and safety risks. A person, who is conducting a business or undertaking it, should consult with workers, who carry out work for the business or undertaking, and who are directly or indirectly affected by the health and safety matter. The task is based on the concept that workers input and participation improves decision-making about health and safety matters and assists in reducing work-related diseases and injuries. So, you should consult with your contractors and sub-contractors and their workers, volunteers and other people, who are working for you, and are affected by a health and safety matter. Workers are entitled to take part in consultation arguments and to be represented in relation to work health and safety by a health and safety representative who has been elected to represent their work group. If workers are represented by a health and safety representative, consultative should involve that representative.
