Download Publication (PDF)
Every farm has a requirement to carry out machinery maintenance and repairs. Accordingly, a workshop and an array of workshop tools and equipment are required. Of course, the extent of workshop equipment varies considerably from farm to farm, varying from the very basic, required by farmers with few machines, to a complete workshop, required by highly mechanised farms and contractors.
Adopting safe work practices is imperative when doing all workshop work. Serious or fatal injury can occur due to the mis-use of virtually every item of equipment. This booklet and accompanying checklist outlines an approach to workshop organisation and key workshop practices required securing Safety Health and Welfare.
