Raising awareness of farm safety

Dairy Australia has implemented a new project that will raise awareness of farm safety on dairy farms, leading to a safer working environment for owners and staff.

It aims to change the way farmers think about safety on dairy farms in order to make a sustainable improvement to the safety of everyone who works or visits the farm.

A Lead & Design team from Dairy Australia is working with farmer steering committees in South Australia and northern Victoria to implement this pilot program.

Manufacturers have their own targets around reducing LTIFR and achieving zero fatalities. By law, all dairy businesses must provide evidence of training as part of their OH&S commitments.
