Farmsafe Australia 2022 National Conference – ‘Recipe for Averting Disaster’.
September 14-15 2022, Pialligo Estate, Canberra, ACT
The Farmsafe Australia 2022 National Conference is our biennial event and is a vital element of the farm safety agenda that reinforces the importance of keeping safety front of mind when farming. It’s an opportunity for famers, government bodies, industry groups and the wider agricultural sector to understand the practical safety decisions that other Aussie farmers are making that can be applied to their own farms. Our biennial conference is the best way to bring these farmers together so that we can learn from peers and industry leaders.
Events at the conference will include a panel titled ‘How Can We Make Training and Certification More Accessible (and Practical) for Farming?’ as well as discussions on child safety, mental health, and many more with leading experts.
At this year’s event, the Farmsafe Australia team are focussing on many of the intangible risks on-farm, including the blurred line between the home and the work environment, the current labour shortages and resultant stress on workload, fatigue management, complacency, and mental health.
During this year’s Farm Safety Week, Farmsafe Australia worked to shine a light on the many intangible factors that impact farm safety across Australia.
“Every farmer understands the unique risks that come with working on their own farm. Taking one extra moment to weigh up factors such as fatigue, mental health or complacency is a first step towards creating a safer environment.” Felicity Richards, Chair of Farmsafe Australia
