SA3-5-Chart-Image---72dpiFollowing work health and safety laws is essential when maintaining a workplace free from injuries and illness. That is why the primary focus of the Sporting Amenities Guide to Workplace Safety released by Pro-Visual Publishing, along with the Sports Turf Associations, to address the key issues for all amenities managers and groundkeepers throughout Australia. It is recommended that managers must implement and introduce a Safety Management System that ensures the safety of operations in the workplace.

There are a variety of programs in the sporting amenities industry, which concentrate on minimising several negative effects on people, the environment and turf. One of the topics featured on the guide involves establishing an Integrated Pest Management program for controlling pests and the damage they may cause. Furthermore, there are several alternative options to monitor insects, including using effective flushing agents such as irritating solutions and dishwashing liquid, as well as placing traps to detect movement. Managing sprayed chemicals is vital as it can affect neighbouring properties, waterways, as well as household and farm water supplies. Employers and employees must be aware of the strategies to reduce spray drift and comply with the procedures.
