Free work health and safety workshops
We're working with Primary Producers SA to help tackle the high fatality and injury rate on farms.
A series of free workshops across the state will promote safe work practices and help farmers eliminate or minimise workplace risks. Of all workplace fatalities since 2005, 19 per cent occurred on farms, yet agriculture accounts for just 4.5 per cent of our total workforce.
These free workshops, running from February to June 2017, are based on the Farmers' Guidebook to work health and safety and cover the crop and livestock, dairy, grape, fruit and vegetable growers sectors. They offer you an opportunity to get practical, sector specific information and advice on:
- hazard identification
- risk assessment
- WHS policies
- duties and legal obligations
- drafting a standard operating procedure.
