NFF and Safe Work Australia launch Farm Safety series

Not sure about how to do a risk assessment? The NFF, together with Safe Work Australia, have partnered to bring you two short videos with four simple steps to guide you through the legal process.

People sometimes put work, health and safety laws in the ‘too hard’ basket because of all the laws, regulation, codes of practice, guidance materials and fact sheets to grapple with.

Watch these videos and you’ll see that things you do every day are probably already helping to meeting your legal obligations – with a few tips for easy record keeping too. More detailed information on the risk assessment process can be found here.

What strategies do you use to keep farm safety in front of mind? We’d love to hear more about your near misses, tips and tricks via the comments section at the bottom of the page!

For farmer and vet, Tom Graham, safe cattle yard design has a dual benefit of keeping people safe and saving money by avoiding costly injury to prize cattle who might otherwise go through a section of old rails and break a leg.

Peter O’Connor is a broadacre farmer from Harden NSW. An incident involving a roof fall triggered a renewed safety focus on the 8,000 ha, O’Connor family farm, ‘Oxton Park’.
