Rural Edge was recipient of the second highest grant amount in the country from the Federal government's National Farm Safety Education Fund, focussed on improving farm safety practices. Rural Edge is now launching their 3 part online Farm Safety program, utilising content from Rural Edge's inaugural Farm Safety workshop!
What's in our program?
The first part is a workshop based on Federal legislation and will contain information around state legislation. The program will be targeted at farm business owners and will result in the development of farm safety plans that cover all types of workers on that farm. Participants set goals related to their farm safety plan at the workshop.
4 weeks' later a follow-up webinar is held to discuss progress on their goals and address any real-life scenarios or questions that have arisen. These first two elements are group based, building a community of peer learners who share and guide each other. They are facilitated by qualified, experienced staff from Processworx.
The final element is 2 x one-on-one farm safety online coaching sessions. The first session is eight weeks after the webinar and the second is eight weeks after that. These sessions provide individual farm safety advice and support to finalise the farm safety plans and complete an independent review of the actions taken to date.
