Risk & Safety for Independent Brewers

Safety Implementation Plan

Step-by-step interactive process to guide you through the implementation of a safety program in your brewery.

Brewery Specific Content

Online access to a library of risk and safety tools and guides, tailored to the brewing industry


An online interactive community to engage with the industry, share learnings and collaborate with the common goal of a safe workplace.


Welcome to BrewSafe, Victual's online safety course designed specifically for brewers.

Victual, together with the Independent Brewers Association, is pleased to offer full access for brewers to information at any time through our online portal. 

This is no longer a two-year commitment but a rolling month-month subscription. You will also have continuous access to the online content library. This means that brewers can consult the information guide at any time and complete their modules in order of brewery-specific relevance. 

Since launching the program in 2018 at BrewCon, Victual along with the 17 breweries have successfully identified 333 corrective actions over the past 24 months. For one brewery, we were even able to negotiate a 50% reduction in their workers compensation insurance premiums.

The truth is, the beer industry is a dangerous business. The hazards in and out of the brewhouse are many and most people have harrowing stories of close calls.

To ensure all members of the IBA stay safe whilst brewing and during their wider business activities, a strategic approach to safety is required.

Victual has developed a tailored safety program for the brewing industry, the Victual BrewSafe program. The IBA is proud to support and endorse this program as a tool for the members to address this critical risk in their business.

The Victual team has continued to contribute to the IBA community with their risk management knowledge and expertise.
