New Interactive Safety Guide Provided to the Wine Industry

Entering confined spaces is seen as one of the most hazardous tasks in wineries. Each year in the wine industry, there are near misses and fatalities as a result of improper confined space entries and management. Working in confined spaces is not the only dangerous task in the Wine Producing Industry; many other factors must be taken into consideration on the job to ensure the optimal safety of workers.

Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Australian Vignerons, Wine Federation Australia and Winery Engineering Association, has released the latest edition of their interactive Wine Producers Guide to Safety 2018/19 to help winemakers keep up-to-date with safety matters.

The Guide not only touches on confined spaces but also provides information on mechanical pruners, sun safety, personal protective equipment and chemical safety. Displaying the Guide in wineries, vineyards and distilleries across Australia will serve as a constant visual reminder of the importance of health and safety and reducing potential hazards.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital technology featured on the Guide to help engage winery workers and contribute to their retention of information in an exciting and helpful way. By downloading the Pro-Vis AR app, users can access engaging resources and further information targeted at ensuring health and safety in wineries across Australia.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Wine Producers Guide to Safety 2018/19. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
