Ongoing project

Citrus harvest handbook (CT19001)

Key research provider: NSW Department of Primary Industries

What’s it all about?

This project is delivering a suite of training resources for citrus growers to improve workplace health and safety (WHS) during harvesting. Providing access to WHS resources that can be used to train staff in the workplace will provide support to citrus producers in meeting their safety obligations, as well as improving the quality of harvest.

Existing resources will be reviewed and updated in line with current requirements, and new tools developed that align with a range of roles along the citrus supply chain. This will include updated harvest and induction manuals for staff, instructional videos and posters, and an online course. To ensure that the materials developed are easily accessible for those who may speak English as their second language, an industry survey will be conducted to determine the three priority languages for translation of safety resources.

When completed, the resources will be distributed and/or promoted through existing communication channels maintained through the levy-funded Citrus industry communications program (CT18000).
