Hort Safe


It's important that new workers understand what their rights and responsibilities are, as well as the rights and responsibilities of supervisors and employers.  This program is designed for workers across the horticulture industry.


Employees without proper safety inductions tend to have a higher tendency for negligence or non-adherence to health and safety regulations. Moreover, these workers are also prone to injuries and fatalities because of misinformation or inadequate knowledge to properly deal with hazards in the workplace.

Target Audience:

This program has been designed for all workers in the Horticulture industry. 

'Horticulture' covers a wide range of activities, including plant propagation and cultivation, crop production, plant breeding and genetic engineering, plant biochemistry and plant physiology. This may involve the growing of fruit and vegetable crops, flowers, trees, shrubs and turf.

Examples of workplaces involved in horticulture include:
  • Nurseries
  • Vineyards
  • Market gardens
  • Plant wholesalers

It's important that your employer has taken action to control workplace risks. You must follow safe working procedures – not just for your own safety, but also for the safety of others working with you.

But you’re frozen: I don’t know what to do? I don’t know where to start? Will the business afford it? Am I putting myself or business at risk?
