Safety and etiquette for dogs at work

From Afternoons, 1:12 pm on 28 May 2024

Around 76 dog incidents happen each day in New Zealand requiring medical attention, according to ACC data.

That's a total of 28,000 incidents annually, costing almost $30 million dollars.

The Dog Safe Workplace helps reduce the number of incidents and protects workers who may come into contact with dogs. 

Company director Jo Clough dropped by our Auckland studio to offer some safety advice.
