Abstract:
Reports on options for improving the adoption of on-farm hazard management practices. The study looked at accreditation schemes as a mechanism to encourage farmers who take OHS training to implement safety measures. The best potential for improving incentives to farmers was identified as discounts on workers’ compensation and public liability insurance. Governments will need to think more carefully about how best to assist farmers with adoption of good OHS practices, as a market based solution is not currently viable.
