National Farm Safety Week 2021
National Farm Safety Week is run each year, in the third week of July, to raise awareness of farm safety issues in rural communities across Australia.
This year, we are looking at safety issues as they span the life of a farmer, from child safety right through to ageing on farm, including young workers, physical & mental health issues.
Children On Farm - Aged From 2 - 18 Years
Young Workers - Aged From 19 - 30 Years
Physical Health - Aged From 31 - 55 Years
Mental Health - Aged From 31 - 55 Years
Ageing On Farm - Aged 55+
How can you be part of National Farm Safety Week?
Share the news
Each day, a new media release will appear in our News section on Farmsafe website - feel free to share the link through your networks to raise awareness of the risky behaviours that have the potential to increase the chances of injury and fatality on farm for each age group.
Then check out our Resource section to access free information on how you can actively reduce the likelihood of injury and fatality on your farm. You can use any of these resources to shape safety consultations that you are having with your workers, your family or the visitors that come onto your property.

Our farmer profiles will be updated every day as part of our national media campaign to raise awareness of the risks on farm at every age of the life of a farmer.
Reminder: Farm Safety is important every day of the year - not just during National Farm Safety Week. This week serves as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the risks and hazards that face our Australian Farmers every day of their lives - while they produce the food and fibre for Australia and the rest of the world.
