While other industries share some of the hazards of farming such as plant, chemicals, noise, sun exposure and working with animals, the combination of hazards found in farming as well as the context in which farm work is done, makes it one of the most dangerous industries in which to work. With this in mind, Pro-Visual Publishing has released the latest edition of the Cotton Industry Guide to Safety, this year featuring Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.
What this means is that further information on current topics can be accessed via your smart device, simply by scanning over any AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR App.
The guide covers a range of topics including:
- Risks of and control measures for harvesters and cotton pickers.
- Quad bike safety and using telehandlers.
- Electrical risks related to overhead power lines.
- Farm fire safety and injury management.
- Using telehandlers to move and unload round modules.
For many of the incidents that result in serious injury or death on farms can be avoided with a little planning and training, a little extra cost and time to make the work safer. Engage with workers and provide information in places where it is readily available. Utilise resources such as the Cotton Industry Guide and make safety a priority not a chore.
