In 2013, Huon won the “best solution to an identified workplace health and safety issue” in the Tasmanian Safety Awards conducted by Work Safe Tasmania.
This award was won for the development and introduction of predator proof pens that will be rolled out throughout the company by 2015. These new pens are designed to keep predators such as seals and bird life out of the pens and to keep our workers and fish safe.
A major feature of the new pens is an enclosed walkway which has eliminated 90 per cent of slips, trips and falls. The introduction of the new pens has already achieved great occupational health and safety outcomes and is already attracting international interest for its clever design that achieves safer work practices.
