This week is Farm Safety Week and this year’s theme is “Creating a resilient, safe and healthy ag community”.
Sadly, too many critical and life threatening injuries occur on our farms each year.
The impact of these injuries on our farming families and their communities is devastating.
Safe Work Australia found that vehicles account for more than 75 per cent of workplace deaths in agriculture and this year the agency is focusing on raising awareness of the importance of quad bike safety.
Farm safety must be a top priority for farmers and governments alike, to ensure that agricultural communities are strong, safe and healthy.
