Keeping our farms free from health and safety risks is a high priority. Farm-related accidents and incidents are life-changing. Our attitude to farm safety and the decisions and choices which make are critical.
Rotary FNQ Field Days is dedicated to bringing more awareness to this theme. We will be exposing more safety methods in our marketing and promotion, hosting a Farm Safety talk and a range of safety demonstrations and attractions at the event, including ATV and 4WD.
Our farm safety demonstrations including a powerful presentation from Queensland Farm Safety ambassador and former rugby league great, Shane Webcke, will be delivered by leaders in farm safety and will cover the various parts of farming life – working, transport, water, electrical and children – and how you can be safe.
Farm safety has several categories and areas of concern, some being:
- - Farm deaths
- - Accidents on farms
- - Motorbike farm safety
- - Water farm safety
- - 4WD farm safety
- - Electrical farm safety
- - Children farm safety
