Farmsafe Australia is the umbrella entity for agencies that share a common interest in agricultural health and safety. Farmsafe Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that aids in the coordination of efforts to address farm safety issues in Australia.
The Farmsafe Australia network grew out the establishment of a number of locally based farm safety action groups and state Farmsafe Committees in the late 1980’s. Local Farm Safety Action Groups continue to be active in a number of states, and are the basis of strong local campaigns aimed at improving farm health and safety in rural communities.
