PRO-VISUAL PUBLISHING HAS released its newest edition of the Wine Producers Guide to Safety.
Supported by the Winemaker’s Federation of Australia and Wine Grape Growers Australia, this easy-to-read guide assists wine makers with best standards of practice and workplace safety, health and risk management.
All are responsible for examining exposure and estimating risk.
To do this, it will be necessary to talk to employees, inspect work practices and look at existing control measures.
Topics addressed in this year’s guide include identifying and managing health and safety of all involved in the industry within areas such as hazardous substances, confined spaces, sun safety and heat stress, as well as personal protective equipment.
Confined spaces is especially a prominent topic.
Often there is no smell, no struggle and no cries for help.
Many victims are simply overcome by too little oxygen or too much toxic gas.
More multiple fatalities occur due to accidents in confined spaces than from any other work-related accident.
“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Wine Producers Guide to Safety 2013/14,” Pro-Visual Publishing CEO John Hutchings said.
“Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge.”

Each chart is practical and informative, providing a quick reference point for management and staff.
Its charts are designed to inform, motivate, educate and above all keep people and their workplaces safe.
