Chance for grape growers to prune safety hazards

Sunraysia grape growers are being urged to ensure they have safety covered this pruning season.

WorkSafe, Department of Health and the Labour Hire Authority are hosting an online information session on 10 June to help businesses ensure they are meeting their health and safety obligations, staying COVID-safe, supporting vulnerable workers and ensuring labour hire workers are treated fairly and provided through licensed labour hire providers.

Agriculture Victoria, Australian Table Grape Association and Victorian Farmers Federation representatives will also be on hand to provide support and answer any questions growers may have.

Subject to COVID-19 restrictions, a three-day inspection program will follow in the Robinvale area from 22-24 June to check businesses are operating safely.
