SafeWork SA has released a series of new videos focusing on the most common causes of injuries on farms.
SafeWork SA Executive Director, Martyn Campbell, said the farm safety videos were part of a broader education campaign aimed at reducing farm-related injuries.
“We recognise that farms are unique and complex workplaces, primarily because they’re also the family home.
“Too often farm incidents involve the most experienced farmer – Dad – which obviously has an enormous impact on the family. Yet most of these incidents are preventable.
“That’s why our new farm safety videos, covering tractor safety, near misses, and child safety, aim to deliver a serious safety message in a family-friendly way.
“I hope that farming kids watch these videos and it starts the conversation that could save a life.
“Our message is clear – don’t let a shortcut or complacency stop you from going home safe at the end of the day.”
