NEW Broadacre Farm Safety Guide

Press Release: December 2013

Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2013/14 - Released

Pro-Visual Publishing, supported by RuralSafe, announces its release of the newest edition of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety. The guide to health and safety in broadacre agriculture highlights key Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) hazards and risks associated with broadacre agricultural production. It delivers practical safety tips to help manage risks and avoid unnecessary illness and injuries to workers, visitors and others on farms.

When it comes to farm safety, whether it is dealing with plant and equipment, silos, fatigue, confined spaces or chemicals, this Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety highlights steps to take to manage hazards and risks that could arise in each field of work. Know that the biggest risk of all is to do nothing! So, it is the responsibility of all workers to take reasonable care of the health and safety of themselves and others, and cooperate with management in their efforts to comply with workplace health and safety requirements.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2013/14. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
