WH&S Update

Legislative provisions relating to WH&S on banana farms can be found in the Work Health and Safety Regulation document below.

One of the main issues to note is that the regulations include a requirement for a travel restraint for bagging machines.

Details can be found at:

  • Section 78: Management of Risk of Fall
  • Section 79: Specific requirements to minimise risk of fall
  • Section 214: Powered mobile plant – general control of risk

If you receive an improvement notice highlighting another section, you can also find it in this document. Simply look for the corresponding number.
