Abstract:

This guidance contains practical advice for those responsible for the operation of zoos, such as zoo operators, safety representatives and managers. It applies to establishments of any size where wild animals are kept for exhibition to the public including aquariums, sanctuaries, bird gardens and safari parks.

Specific hazards and risks associated with zoos are covered, as well as common issues such as slips and trips, manual handling and vehicle movements.

The guidance contains recommendations on how to ensure effective arrangements for the safety, health and welfare of employees and others who might be affected by zoo work activities, such as volunteers, veterinary surgeons, contractors, and the general public.
