FFS On-farm Health & Safety Advisory Service

FFS visits property owners, managers and employers on-farm, briefing on legislative responsibility and they are walked through the FFS Health & Safety Policy which is in a clear and easy-to-follow format. 

 

With client and/or management involvement D’Arcy takes the opportunity to interact with staff (recommended) on the subject of employee responsibility not only to themselves but also to their employer, safe work practises, site safety, emergency procedures and readiness. We conclude with a farm tour of land, buildings, irrigation, machinery, stock handling facilities and any areas of concern. 

 

The client is forwarded an agreed Health & Safety Policy (with additional copies for all staff – this is important) incorporating safe workplace systems, supporting material and a completed FFS Risk Identification / Risk Control Register specific to that property. 

 

FFS supplies a wide range of safety merchandise which is available to purchase at the time of consultation, including quad bike and motorbike helmets, hearing protection, fall-arrest harnesses and components, first aid kits, fire extinguishers, chainsaw safety equipment, high visibility vests, safety signs, chemical handling equipment.
