Agriculture safety campaign

WorkSafe Queensland are running an Agriculture safety campaign to educate people about safety concerns on farms and in agricultural based activities.

“Did you know that only 3% of Queenslanders work on farms, but almost 30% of workplace deaths happen on them?

Around 13 Queensland agriculture workers die each year as a result of a workplace incident and 1700 are injured – affecting one in every 25 agriculture workers.

If you work on the land, stop and think about doing your job safely. Because those few seconds could save your life – and your livelihood.”

There are lots of resources available on the WorkSafe Queensland website including videos, information and a 40 page guide “Serious about farm safety” which you can download or request a copy to be sent out.

Riverina supports this initiative to make our workplaces safer – it’s something that our staff are attentive to and we aim to work with our customers and business partners in their safety endeavors.
