Women In Agriculture Lunch and Learn Series 2021 - Leeton

About this event

The agriculture sector has one of the highest rates of injuries, disease and fatalities. Tragically, in NSW, farming accounts for one in every five worker deaths. We know that there are added complexities of a farm being not only a workplace but usually the family home, as well as an abundance of risks to consider to ensure everyone returns home safely every day.

SafeWork NSW welcome Women in the Agriculture industry to attend our farm safety lunch and learn series to learn more about farm and agriculture safety and speak to presenters connected to the sector.

SafeWork NSW Inspectors will present and provide resources and answer questions about:

  • Safety around your farm vehicle (Quads/SSV/Tractors/bikes)
  • Falls from Heights
  • Machine Guarding
  • General Work Health & Safety (WHS) responsibilities
  • Mental Health (RAMHP)

Those in attendance may also be eligible to apply for the following rebate programs:

  • $500 small business rebate
  • Quad Bike safety improvement program up to the value of $2,000

The event is a 1-hour session with the opportunity to network with likeminded women in Agriculture.

Light lunch will be provided - please contact agriculture@safework.nsw.gov.au if you have any dietary requirments or questions.
