Women in Agriculture Taskforce Health & Safety Survey

The Women in Agriculture Taskforce is currently discussing recommendations on farm safety.  The Taskforce needs your help and input to determine what recommendations would be most practical and effective.

The research report Women in farming and the agriculture sector (2017) found that some women sometimes take risks to prove they are as able to farm as men.  Issues were also raised about having the right equipment for women to farm safely, and the safety of children in the farmyard.  However, these issues are also highly relevant for male farmers, older farmers, farmers with disabilities or injuries, and children.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
