Aim of the Conference
Last year, 2010 was a tragic year in the Agriculture sector when 26 deaths occurred. On average over the years about 30% of workplace deaths took place in the sector, but in 2010 this percentage increased to over 50%. In addition, an estimated 1,800 accidents causing serious injuries occur in the sector each year. Farm deaths, injuries and ill health cause pain, suffering and tragedy, and lead to economic losswhich can jeopardize the livelihood of farm families.
This year’s conference will address the following three themes: Changing the Culture of Health and Safety in Agriculture; enhancing the Health of Farmers and addressing Livestock Related Injuries.
