New tool provides information about WHS for the agriculture industry

Safe Work Australia has developed an online tool to assist those working in the agriculture industry to understand and meet their duties under the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws.

Everyone in the workplace has duties under the model WHS laws. Use our interactive tool to find out how to meet your WHS duties as a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) or worker in the agriculture industry.

The tool also outlines common WHS hazards, including working in confined spaces, working with hazardous chemicals, outdoor work and working at heights, and information about how to eliminate and manage the risks of agricultural work.

Explore Know your duties – a tool for working safely.

For information relating to other industries, please see our industry and business information.

Please contact your state or territory work health and safety authority for information about how the WHS laws apply in your workplace.
