GEAR UP Teaching Students Ag Safety
A new agriculture safety program supported by the National Centre for Farmer Health (NCFH) is empowering the next generation of workers by travelling to schools and educating students first-hand.
Called 'Gear Up for Ag Health & Safety', the program recognises that agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in the nation, while aiming to encourage safer workplace practices into the future.
