There is a section dedicated to farmer specific information such as:

  • Health, Wellbeing and Safety Fact Sheets

  • 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

  • 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.
