Tractor and Machinery


Injury and death associated with machinery operation on Australian Farms has been recognised as a key issue for farm safety for many years.

In 1999 the National Farm Machinery Safety Reference Group was established and developed the first national strategy to actively seek practical resolutions to reduce the prevalence of deaths involving farm machinery.

In the time since, project work and resource development has continued. Please see listing of relevant documents below.
