Farm Safety Information


 Serious about farm safety - Members only
CANEGROWERS has developed a Workplace Health & Safety Guide specifically for its Members.  This document can be accessed on the CANEGROWERS website under the Resources Tab.  Members will need their Membership Number to be able to gain access.   Your Membership Number is noted on your address label that goes with your CANEGROWERS magazine or you can phone CANEGROWERS Mackay on 4944 2600 and it will be provided to you.  The Guide contains sample policies, forms, checklists and registers which are all in an editable PDF format, or you can use the Word document.  Alternatively, CANEGROWERS Mackay Reception can print a copy for you.
 Simply save the pages and forms relevant to your business on your computer, tablet or phone, or print them out.  The guide is divided in the following sections:

•    Key things to know about WHS
•    Induction and Training
•    Record Keeping
•    Emergencies
•    COVID-19 and the Workplace
•    Appendix 1: Sample policies
•    Appendix 2: Exemplars of Management Forms and Audit Checklists
•    Appendix 3: Example Reports and Registers.

CANEGROWERS Mackay also has a Workplace Health & Safety folder and this complements the above guide.  Workplace Health and Safety Queensland have produced a Serious about farm safety booklet and this includes all aspects of legislative requirenents and other  important information to ensure that your business remains compliant. The booklet includes the following templates on a CD:
  • sample health, safety and wellbeing policy

 This booklet and CD are available to Members and copies are held at Reception. To discuss your OH&S needs for your farming business, please phone 4944 2600 and organise a time so that you can get started with your portfolio.
