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.

Resources

Download the Farm Safety Starter kit or order your hard copy here

You 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 

 -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 (A3): when you identify areas for improvement, add these to the Action plan. 

Your feedback - let us know how you've used the safety starter kit on your farm, what you like, what could be improved and what else might be included.

Note: the Farm Safety Starter Kit compliments the Employment Starter Kit initiative (ESKi) which contains more information regarding induction.
