Proposed Improvements to Support Greater Safety in Equine Training

Thank you to everybody who provided feedback on the Discussion Paper for Equine, Safety in Training. The relevant Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) have drawn on this feedback to develop a Business Case for submission to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).

The IRCs are seeking feedback on the draft Business Case up until Monday 17 October.

The Business Case provides evidence of the feasibility for the following work to take place.

  • Modifications to 153 relevant units of competency to incorporate safety, quality and consistency concepts.
  • Development of three to five new units of competency with a focus on understanding horse behaviour and falling off horses safely to minimise the risk of injury.

The AISC will then review this Business Case and determine whether a Work Order to fund the proposed work will be issued.

If the Business Case is approved for funding, the work to develop occupational skills standards will be carried out by Skills Impact under the direction of the relevant IRCs.
