Cordon control: Animal incidents

Control Measure Knowledge

This control measure should be read in conjunction with Cordon controls


The hazard area should be based on:

  • The species, size and behaviour of the animal
  • The kick zones and head butt zones of equines, bovines and larger animals; these may be extensive and will vary depending on whether the animal is:
    • Lying or standing
    • Mobile or trapped
  • The potential for crush injuries, especially between the animal and walls, fences or vehicles
  • The environment the animal is in
  • The presence of other animals

The hazard area should be reviewed if the animal moves from its original location or if its behaviour changes.
