Let’s Get to Work
We know that a combination of legislation, common sense, business knowledge and understanding of personal responsibility to family and workers leads us to the inescapable conclusion that a farm safety plan is an essential component of diligent farm management. What we hope to emphasize throughout this manual is the importance of not just creating and “having” a farm safety plan, but actually “living” your farm safety plan. A plan is worthless sitting on a shelf, it must be seen as a living document, constantly being updated and serving as a tool to keep you and your team accountable.
Now that you have made the commitment to health and safety and have your health and safety team together, it’s time to get started developing your plan – and learning how to put it into action.
