Finch Farm – Health and Safety Makes Good Business Sense

Many industries are taking on a more holistic approach to health and safety in the workplace and seeing the benefits in increased productivity, greater staff loyalty and reduced injury rates. Farming has long been recognised as a hazard-rich occupation where a sound approach to health and safety can make a real difference to productivity and employee satisfaction. Hayden and Rachael Finch are 50/50 sharemilkers on a 191-hectare dairy farm near Rakaia in Canterbury, milking 725 cows through a 40-bail rotary shed. They have been on the property since 2004 and have signed up for another three seasons, with a plan to buy their own farm after that. They live on the farm with their two young children and employ three full-time staff.
