The Green Card for Ag Safety is a self-paced online short course, designed to give a broad overview of farming and to take the repetition out of the induction process for farmers.

Modules include:

  • Recognise and report hazards in the workplace
  • Assess risks associated with identified hazards
  • Follow workplace procedures to control risks
  • Follow workplace procedures for dealing with accidents, fire and emergencies
  • Recognise risks for people and animals
  • Employee responsibilities about work health and safety legislation
  • Undertake safety training
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Undertake safety checks on equipment and machinery before operation
  • Hazardous substances and chemical handling
  • Noise
  • Assess risks associated with manual handling
  • Work health and safety information
  • Raise work health and safety issues with designated personnel
  • Contribute to a safe workplace

Please note that this course is generic and does not consider individual farm environments. We recommend employers to also complete a site induction with their workers.

Participants will receive a Green Card certificate upon completion, which is valid for 3 years.
