We know your time is valuable and you have very little of it to spare, so we can work for you.  The Farm Safety Advisor can help you draft a Farm Safety Plan specifically for your farm activities or consult on other farm safety issues, concerns or initiatives.

The Farm Safety Advisor can…

  • build a farm safety plan for your specific farming operations.
  • conduct one-on-one on-farm inspections.
  • consult on farm specific issues or concerns.
  • provide OHS inspection support.
  • provide OHS compliance order or stop work order support.
  • help develop farm specific best practices
  • conduct a needs or gap analysis for your farm to identify high risk areas on the farm and where training and support is needed.
  • review current farm safety plan & recommend ways to monitor, track and update the plan.
  • provide ongoing support in the implementation and communication of the farm safety plan.

The Benefits of Using a Farm Safety Advisor:

  • Professional advice.
  • Good sense approach to compliance with OHS legislation.
  • Reduce costs of workplace incident and injury.
  • Increased employee motivation and retention.
