Workshop Safety – a FarmSafe Australia safety resource

This publication aims to provide practical guidelines for employers and workers to improve and ensure the safety of those who work in farm workshops, and those who are in the vicinity of areas where fabrication, machinery service, maintenance and repair is undertaken.


The document briefly provides guidelines on the hazards and risks associated with working in farm workshops and practical guidelines on how to implement effective occupational health and safety (OHS) risk control that will not only reduce risk, but will assist farmers to meet OHS regulatory requirements, and improve productivity.


The publication has been prepared under the direction of the Farmsafe Australia National Farm Machinery Safety Reference Group, comprising representatives from industry, occupational health and safety, injury research centres, producers and manufacturers.
