This report provides for the first time in Australia, national baseline data to determine the proportion of farming enterprises, by specific industry and by state, that have in place systems and processes that meet current regulatory and industry standards for protection of the health and safety of persons who live, work and/or visit farm workplaces.
Research findings from the survey will inform the establishment of priorities for investment in health and safety programs by the Collaborative Partnership for Farming and Fishing Health and Safety. The data will also be of interest to those who are planning farm health and safety programs in specific commodity sectors and/or jurisdictions.
