Final Draft Agricultural Policy Feb 2012

PREFACE

 

The current guidelines are the culmination of a period of consultation with the relevant stakeholders in agriculture.  Through assistance from the Sectoral Activities Department of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), a workshop was held at the Sherbourne Conference Centre on the 23rd and 24th November 2004.  

 

Subsequently, Mr. Arni Walters, then Human Resource Manager with Barbados Agricultural Management Corporation Limited (BAMC), was contracted by the ILO, to prepare a draft policy document taking into account the requirements of ILO Convention 155 and Recommendation 192, the local Safety and Health at Work Act, 2005 (SHaW) and the report on the proceedings of the stakeholders meeting.  At the third stage in the consultation process participants attended an intensive one-day workshop, which was held at the Manor Lodge on 7th March 2007.

 

 This entire process informed the contents of the guidelines on safety and health in agriculture that follows. It is envisaged that these guidelines would form the basis of any enforcement strategy that is developed. Further it could also be used as a template by agricultural enterprises who wish to develop a safety and health policy in compliance with the SHaW Act. It is also hoped that these guidelines once disseminated to the various policy makers in the agricultural sector will provide the impetus for the improvement of safety and health practices in this sector.
