Reading & Understanding Legislation

One of the most important things to do as a farm owner is to comply with all applicable legislation to protect human resources and property to become a sustainable farm.  The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act and Regulations outlines the standards required to reduce the risk of health and safety hazards on your farm.
