AgForce always takes farm safety seriously, no matter the time of year. But this week is Farm Safety Week so what better time to remind everyone of its importance.
This year the focus is on intangible risks like fatigue, complacency, the blurred line between the home and work environment, labour shortages and the aging workforce, wellbeing, and many other issues that combine to make Australian farms one of the most dangerous work environments.
AgForce is holding a Farm Safety Luncheon in Roma on Thursday with special guest speaker Julie McDonald (McDonald Holdings), who will give a personal account of her own experience and the importance of having farm safety measures in place.
