|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 .|
