Translated Safety Resources

Translated safety resources for vineyard workers

Vineyard workers are over-represented in terms of injury rates compared to other parts of the wine industry. It is also common for vineyard workers, particularly when engaged by vineyard contractors, to be from a non-English speaking background. 

In order to help wine industry businesses manage common risks faced by vineyard workers, SAWIA has developed four safety factsheets that have then been translated into common languages spoken by vineyard workers from a non-English speaking background. This includes Dari, Khmer, Mandarin and Vietnamese.

The factsheets below cover the following topics:

English

Dari

Khmer

Mandarin

Vietnamese

Topics for the factsheets were identified by surveying SAWIA members who were asked to comment on health and safety issues where vineyard workers, particularly those of non-English speaking backgrounds, would benefit from extra guidance to ensure their health and safety while at work. 

These factsheets should be made available to vineyard workers during their induction. Similarly, these factsheets are a useful resource when discussing safety during toolbox talks or at staff meetings.

Development and delivery of this program and/or activity is one part of the South Australian Wine Industry Development Program as administered by SAWIA, and is only possible from the support and funding provided by the South Australian Government through Primary Industries and Regions SA.
