Reptile Awareness and Safety

 

Snakehandler have been providing reptile awareness and safety training throughout most of Australia since 2005, we have delivered this course to a wide variety of audiences such as Region shows, agricultural societies, Landcare groups, mines, military, construction and forestry workers just to name a few.

Our aim is to inform staff and interested people in living and working with reptiles in their lives, be it at work, home or on holidays. We aim to reduce fear by demonstrating the nature of these animals, giving clear and simple information on reduction of risks around a site and discussing the use of appropriate first aid and first aid equipment.

Having experience in training people in snake catching we are able to bring a different perspective to people, we are able to show that these animals should not be described as aggressive, but instead are highly defensive like any other animal that comes under threat.

Our one hour talk can be done with or without a powerpoint presentation, we can also shorten the talk to accommodate toolbox talks for construction and mining. We are now also in the process of developing a new online reptile awareness and safety course that can be done in the comfort of your own home or companies can opt for this as a requirement for site access.
