I'm a farmer and want access

You can get a free Orange Cross account when a contractor you know shares their information with you.

A free Orange Cross account lets you generate a Risk Register (using our templates or your own); record training; incidents; maintenance; H&S meetings; you can also generate the information for your emergency plan - all for free. You need to have full Orange Cross membership to share your induction information with others (Staff or Contractors).

I service farmers and want an account

For contractors you can get a free Orange Cross account when a farmer you know shares their information with you.

If you don't want to wait for a farmer you can get a free Orange Cross account by applying below. A free account lets you generate a risk register and share it with farmers.

With a free account you cannot delegate information to staff nor can you be "found" by farmers on the Orange Cross directory.

Non Agriculture Use

Although our templates are designed for Dairy Farmers (in NZ) and those servicing them we have other users who are using Orange Cross to share their key information. If you want to explore that option use the contacts tab and we will be in touch.
