Farm Safety Week: Warren 20-25 October 2019

Department of Primary Industries and SafeWork NSW have team up to deliver accredited training at your doorstep to improve farm safety.  Most of the training is fully funded to eligible participants.

This is a great opportunity for locals to pick from a range of safety training including:

  • Operate quad bikes, side by side vehicles and forklifts,
  • Chemical application and storage safety ,
  • Safe tractor operation and maintenance,
  • Working safely at heights,
  • Working safely in confined spaces,
  • Machinery hygiene and
  • WHS for managers and supervisors.

Most of this training is fully funded through the SafeWork NSW Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program, or the NSW Government AgSkilled program for people who work in the cotton or grains industry.

The training is practical and hands on, designed to improve safety on farm.

What participants are saying about the program: "Having the training delivered on-farm with their fellow employees made the blokes a lot more comfortable. The trainers were excellent, really down to earth and with genuine work experience they could draw on to make the training relevant”  Walgett Farmer
