Abstract:

High rates of work-related injury and illness within Australia’s primary industries demonstrate that the creation of safe work environments remains a significant problem. There are many Work Health and Safety programs designed to improve outcomes on farming and fishing enterprises; however, it appears that these programs are underutilised by those in the primary industries sector. The Primary Industries Health and Safety Partnership (PIHSP) have been working to improve the health and safety of Australia’s farming and fishing communities. 

This project aims to explore the barriers to adoption of improved work health and safety (WHS) practices and develop a strategy to address these barriers which would lead to a reduction in workplace injuries and illness. The objectives of this project are targeted at primary industries (with focus on Cotton, Fisheries, Grains, Sugar, Meat and Livestock and Meat Processing).
