Child safety

Farms can be wonderful places for children to grow up, but they can also be dangerous. There are many risks for children on farms such as drowning in the dam, falling off a quad bike, and poisoning by hazardous chemicals.

The child safety on farms fact sheet has a helpful list of recommendations and resources to make sure children are kept out of harm's way when growing up on a farm.

The 'How many hazards can you find?' education tool is great way to get children involved and understand the safety risks present on farms.
