An interactive workshop designed to get you started on improving farm safety and building a system. This workshop will assist you to establish your safety priorities and provides clear templates and guidelines to get you started or take your safety up a notch. 

Farm safety can no longer be ignored –  it is an integral part of running a robust farm business. This workshop will provide participants with the tools to build their own farm safety system and ensure they are safeguarding their people and business.

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop includes a Safe Work Procedure for farm hygiene to help avoid the spread of COVID-19.

Thanks to support from the CBH Group, a post-workshop support webinar will be held 4 weeks after your workshop. This is a great opportunity to reconnect, ask any questions that have arisen since implementing new safety processes and continue you on your farm safety journey.

Safe Farms WA were an integral part of the development of this workshop and are offering a $200 discount on their “Safe Farm Safety System” to participants of the Rural Edge Farm Safety workshop. To find out more details, contact the Safe Farms WA office.
