The health and safety of farmers and farm workers can be impacted by diseases spread by animals and sun exposure.

SafeWork NSW and industry agree to:

  • promote practical on-farm sun safety and controls for diseases spread by animals, for example Q fever.

SafeWork NSW will:

  • look for opportunities to partner with other government agencies and industry organisations to talk to farmers about these issues, with particular focus on remote and isolated agricultural communities.

We will know we are on track if:

  • participation in the NSW Skin Cancer Prevention Working Group with a focus on rural and remote areas increases year on year.
