Farm safety guide

A total of 76 Australian workers, on 22 June last year, had been killed while at work during the preceding 12 months and agriculture has been judged the most ‘dangerous’ contributor.

Farm hazards include big machinery, animals, chemicals, water storage points, noise and sun exposure.
The combination of hazards found in farming, and the context in which farm work is carried out, makes it one of the most dangerous industries in which to work, according to health and safety experts Pro-Visual Publishing.
Pro-Visual Publishing has this week released the latest edition of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety with Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.
AR delivers access to fresh information on safety topics and can be accessed via smart devices by simply scanning AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR App.
The aim of this newly released guide is to educate grain growers on the importance of health and safety within their industry.
Danger areas covered include:

  • Hazardous chemicals.
  • Electrical safety.
  • Machinery safety.

 It is essential that farm workers are aware of the health and safety risks to which they are exposed, according to Pro-Visual.
With the new Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety displayed in the workplace, farm hands will have access to essential, relevant and up-to-date information while on the job.
Pro-Visual Publishing is a specialist in wall-mounted workplace health and safety, food safety and hygiene and wellbeing information resource guides.
Each guide is practical and informative, providing a quick reference point for management and staff, the publisher says.
