Does your business have a comprehensive and effective safety management system?

Check your current farm safety with this quick checklist.


Our Employer's Toolkit consists of the AgForce Safety Management System and AgForce Employment Manual, both developed by experienced consultants with farming backgrounds.


The Employers' Toolkit is $500 as an AgForce member or for $600 as a non-member. Hard copies can be posted for $50 extra. Please contact us at agforce@agforceqld.org.au for purchase.



Part 1. The AgForce Safety Management System (SMS)

An SMS is a comprehensive and integrated system that ensures that all work on the property is conducted safely. It allows you as the business owner to implement a fully documented, accessible and comprehensible system that monitors and improves safety on-farm.

This system is designed in both hard copy format and electronic versions so that it can be customised to your business and includes the following essentials:

  • Health and safety manual including your WHS policy statement
  • Employee handbook
  • Contractor handbook
  • Useful templates
  • Additional resources: guides for quad bikes, checklists, Workcover and so on.

Bought separately, the SMS is $300 as an AgForce member or $400 as a non-member.


Part 2. The AgForce Employment Manual

Like the SMS, the Employment Manual provides policies, procedures and templates to help rural businesses with most aspects of employment.

It is designed to complement the SMS in meeting your obligations to employ workers correctly and meet employment and safety laws. The manual provides systematic information on employment and has forms and templates along with guidance on:

  • conditions of employment
  • pay arrangements and other benefits, taxation and superannuation
  • leave entitlements  
  • grievance policy and code of ethics: code of conduct
  • performance management
  • equal employment opportunity, harassment & anti-bullying policy

Bought separately, the employment manual is $250 as an AgForce member or $300 as a non-member.
