Preventing or controlling ill health from animal contact at visitor attractions - Industry Code of Practice

8 July 2014

This Code of Practice has been produced by the leisure industry in conjunction with HSE. It provides advice and information for owners, operators and managers of visitor premises where members of the public - particularly children - are encouraged to view or touch animals.  

The CoP contains a teachers’ supplement and information that replaces the HSE Agriculture Information Sheet 23 – Preventing ill health at open farms.

The relevant documents can be accessed from Farming and countryside education.
