Event Details

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 was held 4 weeks after 20 workshops in 2021. This was a great opportunity to reconnect, ask questions that had arisen since implementing new safety processes.


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.
