Safety problem

industrial farming

Hello I was recently hired to manage a mushroom farm in canada, it is a large facility with 60 grow rooms (4 rows of dutch shelving) 6 platforms high. I have a small issue I am trying to fix. We have been in trouble with the safety authority on using safety rails on the rolling platforms for mushroom pickers.

We need to implement a system where the pickers will use them. WCB notes if i train them and they sign a form stating that they have been trained and understand that they must use them and it is up to them if they dont that they alone will be held responsible for the actions and that they can be fined, not our company.

What systems do other farms have ? should i have special carts built so that the workers can access the rails easily. ?


The big issue is that the pickers are paid by piece work. They have no real supervisor.
And they do not follow directions. There is a language barrier and I do not speak Vietnamese. So it is very challenging!

I want to make a record of employees and document training updates and ake a form they will sign saying they understand , and were rained to use safety rails, and if they dont use them its them that can get a fine.

How do other farms deal with these ,and keeping workers using them. !

Saftey is a big concern of mine, but there is not much right now!

Any help would be great thanks!!!
