Frequently asked questions
Do I get a copy of my answers?
If a hazard control measure is done or already in place on my farm, what do I write?
When entering your response to a
question, if you have already put a hazard control measure in place, please
write what you did and the word ‘done’ in brackets, for example:
People driving too fast down the driveway – Put up a sign that tells people there are children playing and not to drive faster that 15 km/hr (done).
