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.


Download the Farm Safety Starter kit or order your hard copy hereYou can also download individual sections of the Kit, as you need them to use on your farm:

 -Getting Started: complete the safety checklist, follow with the
  induction process before moving to the 3 key parts of the Kit.
  You can also download the induction checklist (word version)

 -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.
