The Roadmap's third action area commits SafeWork NSW to set an example as a leading regulator to support action areas one and two.

The Roadmap's third action area commits SafeWork NSW to set an example as a leading regulator to support action areas one and two.

Accordingly, SafeWork NSW will work to ensure that the following is achieved over the next six years:

  • continue to build a customer-focused approach to the way we work with agribusiness
  • build the capability of our frontline officers by partnering with industry on industry based training programs in order to better understand the risks on-farm and provide better advice, assistance and engagement with farmers
  • continue to work with other agencies to improve collection of data and information sharing to inform future harm prevention activities
  • work to better understand the relationship between death and injury rates on farms and the human behaviours and decision making that may contribute to them by applying human centred design principles.

Monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and evaluating progress helps us to continuously improve and is important to check the effectiveness of strategies. It is also necessary to ensure that the plan is being rolled out as intended and that changes in the reduction of incidents are in line with our targets.

SafeWork NSW and industry will review this sector plan every two years and commit to work together to check its progress, consider changes or new opportunities, and ensure new or commodity specific harms are identified and addressed.

The monitoring and evaluation process will include SafeWork NSW, industry partners and an industry reference group, using a range of measures including data, information from other agencies and stakeholder feedback.
