'Safe Hands' is a national farm safety initiative launched to coincide with this years National Farm Safety Week. A special 40-page publication entitled "Safe Hands" has been inserted into all Fairfax agricultural newspapers including The Land, Queensland Country Life, the North Queensland Register and Farm Weekly.
Raising awareness of farm safety, the 2018 Nation Farm Safety Week is themed: "Innovation, Safe and Healthy", providing opportunity to highlight the importance of business and industry support when it comes to the well-being of our farmers and attention to risk and safety outcomes.
Rescue Swag are proud to support this worthy cause, in an effort to promote the need to prevent unnecessary injuries, accidents and deaths. This is sadly, a common occurrence on Australian farms, where last year, 68 people died.
While many farms do have numerous safety and operational procedures in places to avoid devastating outcomes. Safe Hands is providing awareness of just how many lives are being lost and how these can be reduced and ideally avoided altogether.
Australian farmers and their families are the heart of our beautiful country and they deserve our support. Checkout the Rescue Swag article featured in the Safe Hands publication or view here.
