Every action you take can help provide a safe work environment. It could be as minor as moving a tree branch off the road, or as major as running a training session for your employees. Safety on farms is critical but it does not need to be hard or time consuming.
Did you know that next week is Farm Safety Week? Held annually across Australia, the week is designed to raise awareness of farm safety issues. This year, the theme is about business (you) working with industry (us) to create a resilient, safe and healthy ag community. At Safe Ag Systems, we want to work with you to increase the well-being of Australian farmers through improved attention to health and safety.
We want to make a difference, but we don’t want to be the ones doing all the work! Starting Monday July 17, we’re going to send you an email each day with some information about a particular topic plus an activity for you to have some fun with! Don’t worry, we’ll help you out along the way.
Our key topics for the week are:
- Monday – Understanding your obligations
- Tuesday – Working in confined spaces
- Wednesday – Kids on farm
- Thursday – How to engage your workers
- Friday – Take action and make a pledge. We’ll help you to achieve your goal.
- And we may have something up our sleeves for Saturday too!
We know you’re all working on making your own operations safer, so let’s do it together, and make our communities safer too.
Keep safe, keep farming.
