We asked Caroline Graham, CEO of Regional Skills Training to explain...
With over 40 years of experience in the agribusiness and horticulture sectors as well as over 20 years in vocational education in lecturing and management,
Caroline provides clarification on the top six questions Safe Ag Systems are asked when it comes to farmers' obligations and WHS legislation.
Once you understand your obligations and the penalties involved, you can be confident to make educated decisions when it comes to your agribusiness.
Forget meaningless piles of paperwork and thousands spent in consulting fees - with Safe Ag Systems, WHS compliance is at your fingertips - anytime, anywhere.
Developed by a team of professionals from both WHS and agribusiness backgrounds, the Safe Ag Systems program has been designed as a platform for enabling ease of compliance with all the major components of Australia's model WHS laws.
Prevention is better than penalty. The program has been carefully designed to assist you in creating legal records of what you're already doing to remain safe - and prompt small changes in your practice which will further promote your shift towards WHS compliance.
Everyone engages 'workers' in their business. WHS legislation does not differentiate between an employee, contractor or a family member working on your farm. If you have a worker coming onto your farm - you hold the same legal obligations to provide them with a safe work environment and safe systems of work as you would an employee.

Your Safe Ag Systems software does rely on an internet connection. Our offline capability will launch early 2018. Many of our clients with unstable internet have been successfully using the platform to setup their safety management plan but not utilising the app out in the field.
Most of our updates can take place in the background which means no disruption to you or your workers. If we are doing scheduled maintenance or updating a new version, you will be notified via email of the time. Our aim to select a time when we have the least amount of traffic on the site.
The App is the tool to gather data from the field and access relevant information on the go. You are equipping your workers with everything they need to get the job done safely and efficiently.
Your Safe Ag Systems desktop program allows you to easily set up your system, enter all your administrative tasks, and create your reports.
