Nearly one in five workplace deaths in SA occur on farm.
Workshops focusing on the set-up of local work health and safety (WHS) networks for ongoing community support in the crop and livestock sector will be held in February and March. The free workshops are a partnership project between SafeWork SA and Primary Producers SA commodity groups Grain Producers SA and Livestock SA, funded by SA Health.
They are based on the new manual Farmers’ Guidebook to Work Health and Safety and offers an opportunity to get practical, sector-specific information and advice on hazard identification, risk assessment, WHS policies, duties and legal obligations, and drafting a standard operating procedure.
TAFE SA has officially recognised the information being presented, and participants will be able to enrol with TAFE SA for free to gain accredited recognition for a workplace health and safety subject within a nationally accredited qualification from the agriculture, horticulture and conservation and land management training package.
More locations will be promoted for April, May and June.
