Nursery and Garden Centres Health Hazards Checklist (Australia) Mobile App

The Nursery and Garden Centers Health Hazards Checklist(Australia) mobile app is intended to reduce health risks in the workplace. Garden centers may not appear to have many safety hazards, but this can often be the case. Simple controls that employers can use to prevent hazards in the workplace, such as wearing gloves, could prevent infectious diseases and lower health risks. It is important to complete hazard identification and a risk assessment in consultation with your staff. This app will ensure that the right control is chosen for the hazards that are relevant in your workplace. It is simply customized to your workplace and always at your fingertips. In an effort to ensure occupational safety and health, you can add form fields to this app to help do things like identify what plant species you have in stock or inform you if pesticide residues are found on certain trees and shrubs you're handling. At the click of a button on your smart phone or mobile device, potential hazards are eliminated!
