Turf Plus is an industry-acknowledged accreditation program servicing the turf production industry of Australia.
It covers five crucial aspects of production and operations, aligning these with best practice standards.
Today’s turf growers are often involved in specific true-to-type, contaminant-free turfgrass production of Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) and other licensed grasses under strict propagation and growing-conditions like TurfCert.
Aspects of turf growing can involve intensive farming operations and appropriate Environmental Management processes are necessary to maintain good standards of stewardship.
Logistics / Transport
New laws around Chain of Responsibility (CoR) in transport are important in the delivery of turf to site. Being a perishable product, the process needs to take place efficiently, safely and within critical timelines. Turf Plus allows for such activities to be carried out safely and legally whilst delivering the turf to the customer in peak condition.
Work, Health & Safety
WHS management is critical in on-farm and on-site operations. Many growers are involved right along the whole chain of turf installation from design and construction, through to delivery and installation and even post-installation and ongoing maintenance work. With Turf Plus growers can meet all their safety obligations in a simple, practical way.
Industrial Relations & Human Resources
The IR / HR module provides turf growers and employers with all the policies, procedures and forms they need to complete employment cycle from hiring through to termination. It provides a wealth of material to assist in everyday operations through to one-off scenarios and keeps abreast of current State and Federal Employment Legislation.
