Local farmers may be able to tap into additional funding to boost farm safety.

Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud said that increasing safety awareness and training to save lives on farms is a critical national issue. 

Recently the federal government announced $1.6 Million in grant funding for activities that improve farm safety outcomes across Australia.

Tragically, 1 in 5 workplace deaths in Australia happen in farm settings.
