Farmers, their families, employees and contractors are being encouraged to send WorkSafe’s Safer Farms programme examples of how they’re farming safely. The winner can then nominate their favourite rugby club or team to receive a coaching session from Richard Loe, WorkSafe’s Safer Farms ambassador.
To enter the competition, farmers, their families, workers or contractors can visit www.worksafe.govt.nz/rugbycomp and submit a brief explanation about the steps they have taken on a farm to improve health and safety. This could include technological innovations, hazard mapping or worker engagement. Entries can also include a video or photograph.
Entries close on Friday 21st September 2018.
