Our popular pre-employment Farm Safety Induction for Horticulture – HortCard, has been refreshed and updated for 2022.
There have been some minor changes to the audio and visual presentation. In a major change we have removed the Covid 19 module. Given the sustained education campaigns throughout Australia (and the world) it was deemed this information was no longer critical for inclusion.
With the removal of the Covid module, the course now takes about 40 minutes to complete. This includes completing the knowledge checks in each module, and the assessment at the end.
As before, once a user has successfully completed the course and assessments, they will be issued with a certificate and vCard which can be downloaded or printed. A copy can also be sent direct to the employer via the built in ‘Send Card’ function. Certificates and training records also remain on the users SafeFarm profile to create a skills passport and audit trail.
The Covid 19 module is still available (for free) on the SafeFarm portal.
If you haven’t already, why not check out the HortCard induction program and see how it could help better prepare your employees, and improve your compliance and farm safety.
