The general biosecurity duty and pig producers


People are expected to have basic level of knowledge about the biosecurity risks they might encounter in their normal work and recreational activities.

All community members have responsibility to consider how actions, or in some cases lack of action, could have negative impact on another person, business enterprise, animal or the environment. We must then take all reasonable and practical measures to prevent or minimise the potential negative impact.

Topics in this Primefact include:

  • What does 'general biosecurity duty' mean?
  • Managing pig biosecurity
  • Farm biosecurity plans
  • Good biosecurity in practice
