Growers encouraged to review WHS procedures during National Farm Safety Week
This week is National Farm Safety Week, and Cotton Australia encourages all growers to conduct a review of their Work Health and Safety (WHS) procedures and protocols on-farm.
The Australian cotton industry is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our people is maintained, because our people are our industry’s greatest asset.
A great place to start is reviewing Australian cotton’s best practices program, myBMP, which has a dedicated WHS module.
There are 33 best management practices standards covering WHS in the myBMP program. In 2019, 68% of surveyed growers said they had improved workplace health and safety as a result of these modules.
