New collaborative approach to rural health and safety

AgriFutures Australia is part of a new partnership to improve our rural industry’s health and safety record and will focus on incorporating innovative research and extension.


The partnership, called the Rural Safety and Health Alliance , will invest in practical extension solutions informed by industry input on work, health and safety risks.


Key features of the alliance include setting clear priorities to better target research, development and extension, strengthening industry leadership and developing a ‘shark tank’ funding model, where applicants work together to pitch projects for funding.


The Rural Safety and Health Alliance is seeking registrations of interest from groups or individuals who want to be kept updated as the Alliance is formed, such as from research and extension professionals, industry associations, producers, agricultural workers, government and advocacy groups.
