For a very informative website, look no further than the National Centre for Farmer Health (NCFH). With it coming to fruition in 2008, the NCFH was founded with vision to be a centre that provided high quality and inspiring education, research and deliver services through partnerships that improve the health of farming communities.
The website contains education and training opportunities including:
Higher degrees by researchers
Workshops for rural professionals and communities
Teaching tools for university and secondary schools
There is a section dedicated to farmer specific information such as:
Health, Wellbeing and Safety Fact Sheets
Health and Safety Assessment Tools
Access to a psychologist online
Programs they provide information for include the following and many more:
ifarmwell – Online Farmer Toolkit
Gear Up for Ag and Health & Safety
Mental Health 4 Ag
The Ripple Effect
For those that enjoy research, there is a section dedicated to rural research which is helping gain funding for running regional initiatives and programs.
Finally there is a one stop shop, The Safety Shop. This online shop contains products such as written material on ‘Managing Stress on the Farm’, to sunscreen, safety goggles, first aid kits, ear muffs, gloves, safety vest and much more.
