If farm safety is something you keep meaning to get around to you should read this.
Not only will proper work safety practices help to prevent a disaster on your farm, Australian work health safety laws require you to have them, and non-compliance can result in hefty fines.
SafeAg is an online safety management program designed to help agribusinesses comply with work health safety laws. It provides easy to use templates and record keeping systems that enable you to integrate safety into your workplace. It covers things like staff induction, up to date training and licensing schedules, emergency and hazard management, machinery maintenance and records to show that you are complying with the law.
For some time Riverland Wine has been encouraging members to use SafeAg to manage work health and safety. To help with this we will be arranging a workshop presentation at Loxton in late July to show people how to use it. The date and time of the workshop will be settled in the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime, you can learn more about SafeAg on their website.
