Why Health and Safety is Important to ALL OF US:
This site, known as Mokai Station, is an industrial workspace- it is not a backyard; it is not; unless guided or given rights to; a playground or private hunting block- it is an industrial work space. If you are not here actively engaged in a working capacity you should not be here.
Everything on site is a potential hazard; from the small stones underfoot you could slip on, to a grumpy cow with a calf at foot who would like to hurt you, to stags during the roar (their mating season) who will kill you if they think you are between them and a female.
The world of farming from 29 years ago when I first moved to live on this land, to 2020, is an entirely different world. The landscape has changed dramatically and no matter our personal ideals- we are all required by law to abide by the standards set for us by our Government- WorkSafe, MPI, Animal Welfare and others.
Mokai Station takes these legislative obligations seriously as any professional business would and should. Respect this environment that you find yourself working in and please report any event, misadventure, mishap, or concern immediately to Mokai Station management.
Please and Thank You.
