|All workplaces must comply with the Work Health & Safety Act 2011 and ensure that all workers are aware of their obligations, are aware of the risks associated with working in a rural environment and are equipped to manage those risks. A trial of a newly developed cane rail siding audit tool has highlighted inconsistencies in the use of protective equipment and a high risk from overhead powerlines .|
|The online Harvest Safety Inductions are for all workers who are employed on sugar cane farms. (Any combination of two online courses will be $100). Each course consists of approx 6-7 topics that contain relevant information and includes an assessment for each topic.|
|1. Sugar Cane Siding - $60
The siding or delivery point is considered a workplace and as such presents a number of risks and hazards which need to be managed.
|2. Participate in Work Health and Safety Processes - $60
General farm safety induction of all workers.
|3. Safe Working Near Electrical Assets in the Rural Industry - $60
If workers are operating machinery or equpiment in the vicinity of overhead power lines this is a must.
|These Harvest Safety Inductions can be completed at home with induction cards provided on successful completion.|
