Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2014/15 – Released

BA10-4---Chart-Image---FINAL-72dpiThe broadacre industry can be very dangerous if health and safety precautions are not followed, so it must be ensured that all workers understand their health and safety requirements. Due to this, Pro-Visual Publishing, supported by RuralSafe, have released the newest edition of their Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2014/15 to encourage safe farm practices.

This year’s guide covers how to handle dangerous goods and hazardous chemicals. Working with chemicals can be detrimental to your health if they aren’t dealt with correctly. How to undertake a Workplace Risk Assessment when working with dangerous goods and hazardous chemicals is explained in the guide, along with Safety Controls applicable to the workplace. The aim is to prevent any accidents that could occur to those using dangerous goods and hazardous chemicals.

Another important topic highlighted in the guide is safety awareness around tractors. Tractors are an essential plant used on broadacre farms yet they are the cause for a lot of injuries and fatalities. Therefore, tractor safety must be at the forefront of everyone’s mind when on and around tractors.

The Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety covers some of the most crucial hazards and risks related to broadacre agriculture, including those mentioned above and more. This guide acts as a great source of information offering safety tips for reducing potential risks and avoiding unwanted injuries to workers and visitors on farms.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
