Most workplace injuries are preventable. Meaning ‘one, together’, Tahi Ngātahi aims to reduce workplace injuries by increasing understanding of each individual’s role in creating a safe and healthy work environment.
Tahi Ngātahi has developed an interactive multimedia training programme for employers and employees in the wool growing and harvesting industry. Farmers, shearers and their staff can access training videos and other resources to update and improve their approach to safety in and around the woolshed.
Completing the self-directed training programme allows farmers to complete their WorkSafe-endorsed Woolshed Warrant of Fitness, while shearers receive a certificate of completion. Knowing who is certified leads to higher safety standards in and around the woolshed.
