AgCard is a centralised online platform containing a number of useful units to improve the health and wellbeing of people working in agriculture. The certificates have been written in collaboration with relevant industry bodies across agriculture.
On achieving 100 per cent accurate completion of all modules in each unit, the user receives a certificate that they can present to their current or future employer as evidence of their knowledge and understanding.
More than 2,100 people from around the world have enrolled to access AgCard since it was launched in July 2020, sharing positive and proactive feedback about the benefits of the online workplace health and safety portal.
Almost 40 per cent of users are students, many of whom aspire to work in agricultural careers. Farmers, teachers and industry representatives believe AgCard will be instrumental in reducing the number of injuries and fatalities in the rural sector, as AgCard-certified employees identify, call out and manage potential risks.
With new modules set to be added, it is vitally important that AgCard remains an industry-focused, flexible and practical tool for future generations of farm families, employees, managers and owners.
There are also a series of teacher resources, designed to assist teachers when students are undertaking the AgCard courses.
