Nina Arnott

Lifestyle

For 39 years Nina ran a live-in camp with a horse program for schools which included a Registered Training Organisation providing nationally recognised qualifications for teaching horse riding. She has been involved in Horse Safety Australia since 1992 and has helped in the development of the AHIC Code of Practice for horse activities (2003), The Safe Work Australia Guide to managing risks of beginners and horses (2014), the Safe Work NSW Code for interactions with horses in the workplace (2017), the Adventure Activity Standards for Trail Riding (2019) and the HSA Standards for group horse riding. Nina has provided qualifications through HSA for approximately 2000 people.

Nina has written expert reports for the court regarding litigation involving horse accidents, and has spoken many times throughout Australia on what people need to know about the codes, how they impact on their businesses, what documentary evidence they need to keep for their workplaces and what are the key risks to their businesses.  The sessions normally have lots of questions and areas which people want information and Nina is looking forward to helping people at EQUITANA.

What to do to protect your business

This talk will be an overview of how the various Australian Codes and Guides, which are about horse activities, impact on you.

What do you need to do to meet WHS requirements? What documents do you need to cover your business ? What are your responsibilities if something goes wrong? Can you be sued if an accident happens? Are you responsible for visitors to your property? What is a risk assessment and when should we do them?

This talk will touch on insurance, being sued, and paperwork that you need to protect your business. These issues are hot topics with coaches, riding schools, agistment centres, trainers, and all who interact with others as they run their horse activities.

Why you might be sued and what will help you if you are?

Being sued is a very upsetting experience and often people have not thought ahead and kept evidence of the good things they have done to manage the risks of their businesses. This talk will cover the types of evidence that will help defend a person/business if they are sued.

Do you have any background information which helps explain what happened, why it happened, and that shows you were not at fault? What information will the expert be looking for? What paperwork should you obtain from clients? What records should you make? Which do you keep? How long after an accident can you be sued?
