Policies are your farm rules and are a useful tool for setting down in writing your expectations and the dos and don’ts of what is acceptable at work.
Safe Ag Systems provides a library of common policies which can be accessed from the Template Library and edited to suit the needs of your business.
If you already have policies that you use, you can create these in the system using the “Build New” function on the Policies screen.
Once you have created and published a policy, it appears on the Published tab and is available for use.
If you no longer need a policy, you can archive it. This removes it from use, but it can be viewed from the Archive tab in case you need to access it in future.
When you update a policy, a new version is created and a copy of the old version is saved in the Archive.
You can assign a policy to a worker for them to review and accept using the “Assign Policy” function on the Published tab of the Policies screen.
The Policy Logs tab shows a list of policies that have been assigned to or accepted by workers. (A report of Policy Logs can also be generated under Administration > Reporting.)
You can attach a policy to an induction or a task to ensure that workers are aware of any requirements before starting work for your company.
