Safety

The RGA has developed a Safety Checklist to assist members in quickly determining on-farm hazards and risks.

The checklist is NOT designed to cover all of the hazards and risks that may be present on farms and members are encouraged to implement an OH&S policy as required by the Occupational Health & Safety Act (NSW) 2000, and the associated OH&S Regulation (NSW) 2001.
