Safety – No.1 Priority on Cotton Farms

Press Release – July 2013 – CottonSafe Guide to Safety 2013/14 – Released


Pro-Visual Publishing has just released its annual safety guide for cotton farmers across Australia. The CottonSafe Guide to Safety 2013/14 aims to promote and inform cotton growers of current and important health and safety guidelines and procedures for best work practice and the wellbeing of farmers and workers. Endorsed by Cotton Australia, this guide focuses on an array of WHS topics, to ensure that safety is a number one priority.

The information provided starts off with the S.A.F.E.R guidelines, the key steps cotton farmers need to follow to assess and manage safety risks and hazards. This year’s guide offers health and safety advice when it comes to handling various equipment and dangerous situations. Transport and how to manage a Telehandler – the chain of responsibility and guidelines for loading, restraining and transporting – is a prominent topic. Other topics include: Contractor Safety Management, Farm Fire Safety, Bulk Fertiliser Safety, along with other important issues farmers face in today’s cotton industry.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the CottonSafe Guide to Safety 2013/14. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
