VegWHS has been developed following discussions with vegetable growers, to help you deal with WHS issues on your farm.

The VegWHS resource is suitable for businesses of all sizes. Large vegetable businesses can pick and choose from the components of VegWHS to enhance their existing system.

Small and medium sized businesses that don’t have a formal WHS program, can easily use VegWHS to build WHS into their business.
