Tool Safety

Many Australians use some form of gardening tool on a regular basis, but they can cause serious harm to you and others if used incorrectly, poorly maintained or used without adequate safety precautions.



As gardeners we have a responsibility to ensure that our actions in the garden do not have a flow on effect and cause harm to the environment.



Most Australian households with gardens would have at least a few garden chemicals. Some of these products can be harmful to people, and if used incorrectly can also be harmful to animals and the environment.

Founded in 1945, Nursery & Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) is the peak industry body for the Australian nursery and garden industry and is responsible for overseeing the national development of this diverse and essential industry.
