Australian Pig Doggers and Hunters Association Inc. - Code of Conduct / Practice

Australian Pig Doggers and Hunters Association Inc. - Code of Conduct / Practice | OCHS11026 Quest 3 | Scoop.it
Samara Evans's insight:

The content of this article really explains a lot in relation to pigging. For any inexperienced hunters (not Luke) this information could be extremely useful, however experienced hunters could probably learn a thing or two by reading it.

Australian Pig Doggers and Hunters Association Inc. - Diseases of Feral Pigs in Australia

Samara Evans's insight:

This article is extremely relevant to Luke. I didn't know that half of these diseases even existed, so there will be many many others involved in pigging that have no idea either. The text explains how you contract these diseases, what they involve, and how to prevent them - which is all the information you really need to minimize the risk of contracting any of them.

Safe Management of Farm Chemicals

Samara Evans's insight:

The information in this document is extremely relevant for Luke. I see first hand the effect chemicals have on him - the coughing, sore throats, sometimes even burning. It is very difficult to avoid these issues when working with dangerous chemicals as often as he does. Safety measures can easily be taken but they don't always completely get rid of the risk.

Samara Evans's insight:

My person of interest for Quest 3 is Luke - small crops farmer. This line of work is riddled with hazards. Machinery of all sizes is constantly in use which is the main danger to anyone in this industry. His hobby outside of work is pigging, which is extremely dangerous. There is always potential for injury due to the close proximity needed to stick the pig, the knife can slip therefore injuring yourself (this has happened to him before), a dog can accidentally clamp onto you instead of the pig, and of course the pig could shake the dogs free and come at you. Vehicle related incidents are also quite common. Generally pigs hide out in terrain that is very difficult to reach, so quite dangerous driving is undertaken to reach them which could easily result in a rollover or similar accident.
