Kidsafe NSW promotes child injury prevention and education in an effort to preserve and protect the lives of our children.

Safety on Farms

Priorities for child safety on farms were developed by Farmsafe Australia, based on consultation with peak farmer groups and research of injury solutions by the Australian Centre for Agricultural Health and Safety. Visit the Farmsafe website: farmsafe.org.au

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rural properties can be wonderful places for children, where independence and responsibility is fostered, where family  relationships are strengthened, and where children are exposed to unique experiences. However farms and rural properties are both a home and a workplace, and children may be placed at  great risk when playing or helping out.
