Cultivating Safety on Farms
Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2017 – Released
As at 22 June, 76 Australian workers have been killed at work this year alone, and the agricultural industry is one of the contributing industries to this alarming statistic. While other industries share some of the hazards of farming such as plant, chemicals, noise, sun exposure and working with animals, the combination of hazards found in farming as well as the context in which farm work is done, makes it one of the most dangerous industries in which to work. With this in mind, Pro-Visual Publishing has released the latest edition of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety, this year featuring Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.
What this means is that further information on current topics can be accessed via your smart device, simply by scanning over any AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR App. The aim of this Guide is to educate grain growers/farmers of the importance of health and safety within the grain growing industry.
Additional areas this Guide features, includes:
· Hazardous chemicals.
· Electrical safety.
· Machinery safety.
It is essential that workers are aware of the health and safety risks they are exposed to in the farming industry. With the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2016/17 displayed, workers will feel comfortable knowing they have essential, relevant and up-to-date information at hand to refer to when needed.
“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Broadacre Guide to Farm Safety 2017. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
