The VFF Making Our Farms Safer project has created this SOP video on Side-by-Side Vehicles, to help you stay safer on one of the most used and dangerous pieces of farm machinery.
An excellent animation from SafeWork NSW that shows a tragic incident that occurred when workers were exposed to hazardous gas in a confined space. The animation highlights what went wrong, what could have been done to prevent the incident occurring and what you can do to stay safe when working in or near a confined space.
The National Farm Injury Data Centre has found that there is, on average, 1 death and 16 workers’ compensation claims per year involving grain augers. There will be many more injuries, as most day‐to‐day work on farms is undertaken by self employed farmers and their families and injuries to these will not be included in the official workers compensation figures.
