Our purpose - to provide a trusted and enabling environment for all agri women to realise their potential and grow the agricultural sector.
Agri-Women's Development Trust (AWDT) with Nicole Oliver.
The table below shows the last five years fatal accidents by industry, and fatal accidents up to 1st April for 2016. The Agricultural sector is losing too many of our loved ones every year – on average 66 more deaths a year than the construction industry. So far this year we have had three fatalities. What can we do to prevent any more fatal accidents on our farms in 2016 and bring our average down? AWDT are committed to supporting you achieve zero deaths on farm. We are running a series of Free workshops funded by Worksafe and ACC. These workshops give an in-depth look at behaviors and values that drive culture and help you identify and lead the change to keep your team safe this year. We know how hard it is to get this message across to our teams.
