ACC - Thoughts from the Vineyard
Having just sat through a course on general farming risk…..
I thought I would share a couple of points for your consideration……
Farming is a risky business……
- 37% of the workplace fatalities in 2011 occurred on farms despite farming only making up 11% of NZ's total employment
- 18,700 ACC farm accident claims in 2011 - one every 28 minutes
- Age and experience are no protection - the risk of injury actually increases with age and experience
Now that all said we here at TvA can't stop all the accidents, but we can help you address some of the risk vs cost….
Watch out, we are about to run an ACC health and safety course so you can get an additional 10% off your premium, and also start minimising the risk!!!
The course will be run sometime in August and the cost is a donation to the Marlborough Hospice.
If you are interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and we will be in touch with a time and place.
