This research report is about factors that will improve adoption of safety practice and systems on Australian farms. The review describes approaches and evaluation reports of Australian farm safety programs and other relevant studies that provide information about individual safety behaviour change and community/organisation factors associated with safety change. This research examines the evidence for how Australian farmers actually move to adoption of recommended farm safety measures and on the basis of the evidence proposes an integrated model of safety behaviour change that can be used by industry agencies and the Farmsafe Australia network to design and implement promotion programs.
