CHANGES TO GROWSAFE CERTIFICATES
Growsafe’s certificates have changed. From 1 January 2018, we replaced the GROWSAFE Introductory certificate with two certificates:
- Growsafe Basic which is for users working under supervision and first-time agrichemical users. This course provides practical, task-related knowledge with a focus on personal safety.
- Growsafe Standard which is designed for those taking responsibility for a workplace or site and may have responsibility for managing or supervising others. This will prepare you for the Certified Handler certificate as well as meeting EPA requirements .
Growsafe recommends that all staff using agrichemicals attend a Growsafe Basic course and at least one person from each workplace hold a Growsafe Standard certificate.
