This report is the first in-depth assessment of the health and safety knowledge and practices of small area farmers in Australia. The data will provide a basis upon which to develop relevant implementation approaches to assist the increasingly large number of small area farmers in improving their health and safety.
Concerns have come from government and those involved with policy development that these farmers are not involved or represented and that small area farmers are not the target of mainstream farming safety programs. Consequently, this report is targeted at those agencies that have a role to play in enhancing the regulatory basis and/or active implementation of health and safety interventions.
