The Farm Safety Walkabout booklet is aimed at assisting farm operators, parents, children and new and young farm workers in identifying some of these potential hazards and encouraging them to have open conversations about farm safety and ways to keep themselves and others safe.
The Farm Safety Walkabout is a family activity where parents can guide their family, extended family or even new employees through checklists, discussions, and activities focused on farm safety. Although this resource is structured for farm families the walkabout activity and discussion is very useful to encourage a farm safety culture with employers and young and new farm workers. Effective injury prevention must be a concern of all those that are present on the farm. This activity will increase your awareness of farm child safety, owner/ safety-related change.
