Work Safe Australia - Work Health and Safety in the Agriculture Industry

The agricultural industry was identified as a priority industry in the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 (the Australian Strategy), which was developed through consultation with governments, industry, unions and the public. Priority industries were based on rates of injuries, diseases or fatalities, or the nature of hazards found in the industries. The aim of the Australian Strategy is to focus attention on priority industries so that causes of workplace injuries, diseases and fatalities can be identified and minimised through appropriate prevention strategies. This statistical report supports the objectives of the Australian Strategy by identifying the main risks faced by workers in the agricultural industry and highlighting areas within the industry that merit the greatest attention.
