Safeguarding the Horticultural Industry.

Horticulture-commodity-induction

Digitise your inductions for smoother onboarding.

A digital solution for worker inductions. Ensure you’ve covered the important topics - hazards, clothing, safe use of the picking ladder or pruning equipment and more.
Create your own or use our Working During Harvest Induction template. Assign it to one or multiple people. Communicate with workers and contractors without having to repeat yourself.

Ensure your workers have the proper training.

Equipment makes the workload easier. Manual handling is being replaced by mechanical aids, tractors, forklifts, quadbikes and slashers. 
A digital training register helps you stay aware of the training records for your entire workforce. Keep track of worker's Tickets, Licenses and Certificates, set expiry dates and schedule required training.

Clearly identify hazards on your orchard.

Create a digital Hazard Map, include field boundaries, yards, bin stacks, no-go zones and packing sheds. Make it clear where your workers can go and the hazards they could encounter.
Track potential risks and areas on farm that require attention. Workers can pinpoint hazard locations and add a new one. Help workers confidently navigate your farm.

Set guidelines your workers can follow.

Horticulture workers are regularly exposed to hazardous chemicals - fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides and fuels. They also utilise machinery to get the job done - air seeders, Cotton Harvester and cherry pickers.
Provide clear instructions. Ensure tasks are completed efficiently. Implement Policies and Safe Work Procedures to avoid repeating yourself.
