Farm Safety

Dairy Australia is committed to assist farmers in the way they approach safety to make a sustainable improvement to the safety of farm owners, employees, families, contractors, service providers and visitors on dairy farms.

The goal has to be zero fatalities on dairy farms.

Farm Safety Starter Kit

Developed by dairy farmers for dairy farmers, the farm safety starter kit provides practical, easy to use resources to enable dairy farmers to get their farm safety system started or improve the existing system. The kit contains:

  • Farm Safety Induction: a checklist on the key areas to be covered for new employees, roles and responsibilities for farm managers and employees
  • Safety System Snapshot: a ‘traffic lights’ format which compares your farm system to the law 
  • Quick Safety Scans: a set of one page scans on the key hazard areas on a dairy farm 
  • Injury and Incident Register: a ready-to-use template to record incident information
  • Action plan: to assist you to follow up on the areas that need to be fixed or improved
