Occupational Safety & Health Policy

WAMIA is committed to making sure that all employees and third party users are safe from injury and risks to health while at work at the Muchea Livestock Centre (MLC). The Chief Executive considers the health and safety of its employees, third party users, contractors, and general public to be of primary importance and is ranked equally with all other activities of the organisation.

WAMIA requires that all employees, third party users, and contractors cooperate in the achievement of these objectives, together with livestock sellers, buyers, other users and visitors to assist in the prevention of injury to themselves and others.

WAMIA aims to provide a healthy and safe workplace and will comply with all legal requirements to provide the following:

  • A safe and healthy working environment for all its employees, third party users, and contractors.
  • Safe systems of work and plant and materials in a safe condition.
  • The necessary information, instruction, training, and supervision to staff to make sure that all persons are safe from injury and risks to health.
  • Effective ways of consulting with the workforce and their representatives on all occupational health, safety, and welfare issues.
  • Effective ways of reporting, recording and investigating all injuries, work-related illness, and ‘near misses’ at the MLC.
  • Effective rehabilitation measures for employees who suffer work-related injuries and illness.
  • A safe environment for all sellers, buyers, and temporary visitors.

Muchea Animal Welfare

The Western Australian Meat Industry Authority, in partnership with delegates from the saleyard industry, Government and other industry sectors in 2008 developed Animal Welfare Standards for WA saleyards.

This project follows on from previously developed industry animal welfare standards for the meat processing industry (Australian Meat Industry Council) and the transport industry (Australian Livestock Transport Association).

Animal welfare is everyone’s responsibility, thus the standards for each sector need to reflect the good practices applied, together with the Code of Practice provisions and be linked throughout the production chain.

The standards will consist of 2 documents, 1) the standards and 2) the working manual.

The standards cover areas similar to those previously developed for other sectors, including “planning and contingencies”, “facilities and equipment”, “staff competency and training”, “management of livestock” and “humane destruction”.

Live Export Depot

The Muchea Livestock Centre Cattle Transhipment Area has been accredited by Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service as a Registered Premises for Live Export.

The Cattle Transhipment Area Muchea Livestock Centre, under Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service requirements, has a capacity of 1200 head. Accreditation enables the facility to receive, hold and prepare cattle for live export shipments for live exporters – specialising in short term stays.
