Adding a new mapped Hazard or Items

Once you have mapped a location, you then have the option to add hazards and other items such as structures and traffic flow plans to your maps.

Hazards and features can be added with a geo-location or listed if they do not relate to a particular geographic location.

You should mark in hazards which your workers or visitors need to be aware of. Start with significant hazards – eg. Chemical shed, powerlines, power poles, dams

You can also add in a wide range of farm features such as structures, fuel tanks, trees, assembly areas.
