Health and Safety Training Manuals

Hey Folks, We are in the process of putting together our training manual for staff and want to beef up our health and safety on the farm. I was wondering if anyone has a manual that they have used or put together that they would be willing to share? I will share ours here once done as well, but would like to see what others are doing as well.

Many thanks,

Peggy

Hey Peggy - have you taken a look through this list? https://www.cfib-fcei.ca/en/tools-resources/workplace-mandatory-posting-and-training-requirements-0 It includes what you’re legally obligated to do for health & safety (and more) as an employer. 1 of the obligations is that all workers take an online health & safety course & that you put the certificate of completion on file. Not necessarily the BEST training… but 1 to include in your list of things to do. I also wrote up a health & safety policy that I post. Again - not the most important part of a training really, but legally important to have. And sends a clear signal to workers that health & safety is valued and a shared responsibility…even if it doesn;t get into the details of what is considered safe in any particular farm practices. I’m happy to share it - it’s nothing special, but it’s definitely something I go through on our orientation day to let folks know that just b/c this is a farm it’s not ok to do stupid stuff.

Thanks Angie. This is useful. We will post our manual once it is done for others to review or use as a reference.
Many thanks
