Shearing Sheds need to be a safe workplace for all workers as legal requirements are strict and penalties are heavy if these are not met.

Simple and inexpensive changes to shearing shed layout and improved work practices can have a substantial impact on the risk of injuries.
By implementing these changes, the Industry will be seen as actively pursuing Industry  Safety, and Regulatory bodies may not be as active as they could be.

By reducing the injury risk, there will be significant improvements in productivity and the quality of work.

Reducing injuries, also reduces costs, which will brings savings to all concerned.
