For Equine Vets Everywhere

Guidance on Managing Equine Risks

In August 2014 a report was commissioned by BEVA into work related injuries to equine practitioners. The findings showed that being an equine vet is one of the highest risk civilian occupations and it was clear more guidance was needed so that equine practitioners and those affected by their action could carry out their tasks with horses more safely.

BEVA has produced a document to provide guidance for those handling and involved with equines.  It aims to make workers aware of the steps that they can take to make their jobs as safe as reasonably possible and how to risk assess a situation and limit the risk that they and others are exposed to.

The document, which sits alongside a behavioural guide written by Gemma Pearson, is available below:
