- In order to maintain safe, sturdy cages and fences, maintenance should examine whether or not the cages or fences meet all safety codes and regulations of the State.
- Employees should also periodically check to see if maintenance is required to avoid any unnecessary accidents.
- Employees must also be constantly aware of people’s actions and behavior towards the zoo animals, especially to help prevent an animal attack accident.
