General Farm Safety
Cuts, abrasions, crush injuries, burns, and sight and hearing damage are common occurrences in the workshop. It's a highly risky environment that needs to be set up correctly, inspected regularly, and kept in a tidy state to minimise hazards. Some basic rules should be in place and can be supported with signage wherever there is higher traffic through the workshop. All workers must be aware of the location and use of safety equipment such as PPE, first aid, spill kits and fire extinguishers. Strict guidelines for visitors such as children will also help to manage the risks. Here are a few tips on keeping your workshop safe for everyone.
