Tahi Ngātahi is an online training platform for everyone working in and around the woolshed.

Tahi Ngātahi is a new online learning platform that uses video clips to pass on skills and safety tips to farmers, shearing contractors and their employees so they can run a safe and productive wool harvest.

It’s a joint initiative between the NZ Shearing Contractors’ Association (NZSCA), Federated Farmers, Worksafe NZ and ACC.

Tahi Ngātahi is designed to make life better for woolshed workers, farmers and shearing contractors. All parts of our industry have come together, to create something that makes us all safer, our careers longer, and to help us look out for each other in the shed.

It makes health and safety training accessible, part of ‘business as usual’ and a team effort. Over 800 farmers, shearers and wool handlers have signed up since it was launched in 2018.
