With around 15% of all Australian worker fatalities occurring in agricultural industries, it’s a major focus for October’s National Safe Work Month.
Statistics gathered by the Australian Government statutory body Safe Work Australia during 2011-2012 and 2015-2016 show that in the Agriculture industry there were on average 2,800 serious workers compensation claims each year – 20% were caused by livestock, 12% were muscular injuries sustained from handling objects and 11% of injuries were from falls from a height.
Actual numbers of injuries are unknown, as only the most serious of injuries are reported. Manage your workplace safety – check your health and safety obligations with the appropriate State & Territory body safeworkaustralia.gov.au/whs-authorities-contact-information.
The Agriculture Industry often has special requirements in any work situation that involves handling food: high visibility plasters and dressings are among the requirements to ensure that workplace injuries do not lead to foreign objects contaminating food, and burn treatments and eyewash treatments are needed in many areas involving machinery. Our food-grade kits contain our famous blue detectable adhesive plasters and other products to meet the stringent criteria required of the Australian and New Zealand Food and Beverage industries, making them the ideal solution where food handling takes place.
Agriculture workers are often in remote areas and prone to Snake Bite incidents – get extra protection with supplementary compact wearable kits designed to deal quickly with these specific demands.
