New in­dus­try guides make safety on farm an easy pri­or­ity

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

SAFETY should al­ways be a num­ber one pri­or­ity on farms and in all work places which is why the Na­tional Safety Coun­cil of Aus­tralia Foun­da­tion, Safe Work Aus­tralia and Ru­ralSafe have col­lab­o­rated to re­lease two new safety guides for the live­stock and broad­acre in­dus­tries.

Pub­lished by Pro-Vis­ual Pub­lish­ing, the Broad­acre Guide to Farm Safety 2015/16 and the Live­stock In­dus­try Guide to Work­place Safety 2015/16 have been re­leased to pro­vide quick ref­er­ence points for man­age­ment and staff to in­form, mo­ti­vate, ed­u­cate and to keep peo­ple and their work­places safe.

The live­stock safety guide has been re­leased with aug­mented re­al­ity ca­pa­bil­i­ties where by us­ing a smart phone ap­pli­ca­tion, farm­ers work­ing in the live­stock in­dus­try can un­lock hid­den con­tent and en­gage with the most upto-date safety in­for­ma­tion.

The broad­acre safety guide aims to ed­u­cate broad­acre farm­ers by demon­strat­ing var­i­ous ways to pro­mote safe work prac­tices on farms.

Ap­ply­ing sun­screen, wear­ing pro­tec­tive cloth­ing and per­form­ing reg­u­lar skin ex­am­i­na­tions are just some of the help­ful sug­ges­tions fea­tured in the guide.

Both guides are free of charge and can be ob­tained by vis­it­ing www. pro­vi­
