Implementation - Step 6 - Procedures

Safe Work Procedures are the farm rules around how workers must operate machines or undertake particular tasks.

  1. Navigate to Documents and Files > Procedures in the left hand menu.
  2. Create Procedures.
    • If you already have Safe Work Procedures you can replicate them using the Build New button on the right hand side.
    • If you have none, use the Template Library tab at the top.
    • Click on the 3-dot-png-1 menu on the right hand side and select Use Template and Customise – this will save the SWP to the Drafts tab.

Procedures (commonly called Safe Work Procedures or SWP's) are your farm rules around how a machine should be operated or task undertaken. Procedures can be created for individual machines, tools, tasks, etc or for groups of machines - eg. one SWP for all tractors.

As you add inventory items in Step 4 then create procedures that relate to them where required.

Start by focusing on procedures for your machines or tasks with the greatest risk of causing injury.
