Pro-Visual Publishing  is set to release the 2011 edition of the Veterinary Industry Guide to Workplace Safety. The visually appealing guide is distributed free of charge and provides valuable, up-to-date information, acting as an important reminder for veterinarians and pet owners on safety and health when dealing with animals. Pro- Visual Publishing works in conjunction with the Australian Veterinary Association to ensure the most relevant and crucial information is distributed.

When working with Animals, veterinarians, vet nurses and other animal handlers need to be aware of the possible consequences and take a variety of precautions to minimise the risk of infection. This edition features safety information on Zoonotic diseases such as the Hendra Virus and lists symptoms in horses, symptoms in humans, as well as advising on prevention.

This edition also visits chemical handling, as it is imperative that anyone who uses agricultural or veterinary chemicals do so in a responsible way so that any damage to human health, animal health and the environment is kept to a minimum. Included in this topic is a list of safety guidelines for storing, handling, mixing and using chemicals.

Additionally the guide details essential information for pet owners on caring for pets, including how to care for pets during a disaster, after a disaster, while on holidays, post surgery and during fireworks. It is important to be prepared for a disaster and have an evacuation pack ready for your pet, a checklist for this is provided in the guide.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors for their support of the Veterinary Industry Guide to Workplace Safety, who have made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge to the industry”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro- Visual Publishing.
