We have a house a 2 story family style house. We also have “singles” accommodation which is an 8 bedroom ex sharers’ quarters commonly known as the Stump. We also have a guest house available for visiting family members of staff, affectionately know as the West Wing and a 3 bedroom cottage 1 km form the compound which is als family style accomodation.
We have a farm safety program in place and on your arrival at we will take you through all our “safety expectations” but any program is only as good as the people who implement it. Thinking safely must become a part of our everyday lives. Sunscreen goggles helmets gloves etc will all be provided. It is your choice to use them or not. Every vehicle must carry water (everyone here uses back packs for carrying water when mustering).
At no time is any one to leave the compound with out letting some one know where they are going and if you are working by your self you must ensure that the 2 way in the vehicle is working or take a radio with you.
We are very happy to discuss any new safety measures you think may enhance our existing safety program.
Having now set up a fairly productive system here our greatest challenge is to find the right people to run the system and run a profitable business.
Ardie and I both want to continue living at Sutherland but want to step back to more strategic roles instead of the very “hands on” roles we have at present.
