OUR FARM SAFETY HEROES
For this Riverland farmer, a change in staffing prompted a change in attitude to safety. When his new workman Tim started in 2017, Brenton realised the importance of sending him home safely each night to his family.
"I’ve had to take the lead with safety on my property to encourage our workers to follow"
A stint in the notoriously safety conscious mining industry highlighted a need for dairy farmer Martin Knowles to improve his operation’s safety policies.
"Our industry is facing increasing farm safety requirements as the companies who buy our milk place increasing importance on farm safety"

Having two young children who are curious and eager to climb into – and onto – anything, prompted Jess and Joe Koch to look into improving safety on their farm.
"We took the kids with us to see what risks there were for them,...and we then compared that with our policies and procedures"
For a younger generation farmer Lochie Hampel, being proactive in embracing technology saw him as one of the first to sign up for the Safe Ag Systems software.
"For me, it was just something that had to be done. We have started to be more aware of safety since we implemented the software and are doing things like fencing off dangerous areas."
A goal of improving efficiency in her farm safety management prompted Victorian grower Kate Cowan to subscribe for Safe Ag Systems.
Their farming operation, in the northern Wimmera, employs three full-time staff and several casuals during the busy seeding and harvest periods. The property is mixed cereal and legume cropping and hay production.
"I found my paper-based system inefficient to update easily"
