Farm safety starter kit
Developed by dairy farmers for dairy farmers, the Kit provides practical, easy to use resources to enable you to get your farm safety system started or improve the existing system.
–Safety System Snapshot: use the snapshot with your farm team
to check your farm safety system against the current Work Health
and Safety Legislation & create an Action plan.
–Earlier Safety Improvements: use this tool to think back over the last
2-3 years and make a list of safety improvements you have made –
some may not have been done just for safety reasons, but have
improved the workplace from a safety perspective.
–Quick Safety Scans (14 scans): a set of 30 minute scans on the key
hazard areas, designed to assist you in identifying and fixing
hazards identified. The safety scans are designed to be used when
setting up your safety system and then for ongoing reviews.
–Action Plan: when you identify areas for improvement, add these
to the Action plan.
Note: the Farm Safety Starter Kit compliments the Employment Starter Kit initiative (ESKi) which contains more information regarding induction.
