Here is some safety information related to using a golf cart.


  • Collision with pedestrians or other vehicles
  • Overturning due to excessive speed or sharp turns
  • Electrical hazards if the golf cart is battery-powered
  • Falls from the golf cart
  • Crushing injuries if the golf cart is tipped over or if objects fall onto the operator

Risk Controls:

  1. Pre-Operational Checks:
  • Conduct a visual inspection of the golf cart, checking for any damage or defects that may affect safe operation.
  • Check that all controls are working correctly, including the brakes, accelerator, steering, and horn.
  • Ensure that the battery, if applicable, is charged and properly connected.
  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
  • Wear appropriate PPE, including a helmet, safety glasses, and closed-toe shoes.
  • Consider using high-visibility clothing to make yourself more visible to other workers and the public.
  1. Safe Operation:
  • Only operate the golf cart on designated roads or pathways and at a speed that is appropriate for the conditions.
  • Avoid sharp turns or sudden stops that could cause the golf cart to tip over.
  • Maintain a safe distance from pedestrians and other vehicles and use the horn to alert others of your presence.
  • Do not overload the golf cart with passengers or equipment, and ensure that any loads are secured to prevent them from falling off.
  • Avoid driving the golf cart in inclement weather conditions, such as rain or high winds, as this can increase the risk of an accident.
  • Do not leave the golf cart unattended unless it is parked in a designated area.
  1. Emergency Procedures:
  • In the event of an accident or emergency, immediately stop the golf cart and follow any site-specific emergency procedures.
  • If the golf cart tips over, remain inside the vehicle with your seatbelt fastened until assistance arrives.
  • If there is a fire, quickly exit the golf cart and use a fire extinguisher to extinguish the flames if possible. If the fire is too large or cannot be controlled, evacuate the area immediately and call for emergency services.

Training and Communication:

  • All operators of golf carts on the worksite must receive appropriate training on safe operation and emergency procedures.
  • Ensure that clear communication channels are established between operators and other workers, and that everyone on the worksite is aware of the risks associated with golf cart operation.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey everyone, Gary here to talk about a topic that’s crucial for any workplace: the role of management in supporting safe work method statements.

As a business owner, CEO or manager, it’s your responsibility to ensure that your workplace is safe for your employees. Safe work method statements (SWMS) play a crucial role in achieving this goal. These documents outline the steps that need to be taken to complete a task safely, as well as the potential hazards that need to be avoided.

But SWMS are only effective if they’re supported by management. It’s not enough to just have a document sitting in a drawer somewhere. You need to actively promote and support the use of SWMS in your workplace. Here’s how:

First, make sure that SWMS are actually being used. This means training your employees on how to create and use SWMS, and then following up to make sure that they’re actually doing it. You can also use tools like audits and inspections to check that SWMS are being followed correctly.

Second, make sure that SWMS are up-to-date and relevant. Your workplace is constantly changing, and so are the hazards that your employees face. Make sure that your SWMS are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect these changes.

Third, lead by example. As a manager, your actions set the tone for the rest of the workplace. If you prioritize safety and actively use SWMS yourself, your employees are much more likely to follow suit.

Fourth, provide the resources necessary to create and use SWMS effectively. This could mean investing in software or training programs, or simply providing the time and space for employees to create and review SWMS.

Finally, make sure that your employees feel comfortable reporting any safety concerns they have. This could be something as simple as a near miss or a suggestion for how to improve a SWMS. By creating a culture where employees feel comfortable speaking up, you can catch potential hazards before they become serious problems.

In short, supporting SWMS requires a proactive approach to safety. As a manager, it’s up to you to make sure that your workplace is safe for your employees, and SWMS are a crucial tool in achieving this goal. By actively promoting and supporting the use of SWMS, you can create a workplace where safety is a top priority.

Remember, it’s not enough to just have a document sitting in a drawer somewhere. You need to actively promote and support the use of SWMS in your workplace. By doing so, you’re not only protecting your employees, but also your business. Workplace accidents can be costly in terms of both human and financial resources, and preventing them should be a top priority for any business.

Thanks for tuning in, and remember: safety first!
