Farm led design - Birdscaring Guidelines
Current list of participants
The H&S Forum has been approached by WorkSafe to see if we would like to assist in rewritting the national guidance brochure for bird scaring. This document will cover all types of bird scaring, including shooting, drones, netting, gas bangers, kites etc.
WorkSafe would like to engage with the Marlborough community to identify the methodologies currently used to prevent birds from eating crops (grapes, cherries etc.); what risks are associated with these methodologies and the best application of controls for those risks.
If you would like to be part of the guidline review please email Jo Lumsden

Who are we?
Marlborough Health and Safety Forum is a collection of people who are involved in Health & Safety and want to help each other. Some of us are passionate safety professionals, others are people who've inherited safety along with another role. We meet at 10am on the second Friday of each month & also have an e-mail network. Our focus is to keep Marlborough employees safe & healthy by networking and sharing solutions.
The forum includes representatives from organisations such as ACC and Labour Group. Meetings may involve presentations about up coming changes, or projects that individual members are working on. We also benefit from any members that have attended conferences & bring back information for us all.
