Australia’s rural industries, represented by nine Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs)*, are leading the way on health and safety improvement through effective research, development & extension (RD&E).
The RSHA facilitates cross-sectoral RD&E to minimise the negative impacts associated with death, injury and illness, and maximise the benefits of a productive, healthy and safe rural workforce. It invests in practical RD&E solutions informed by industry that address work, health and safety risks.
The alliance is overseen by a Management Committee comprised of representatives from each of the partner organisations and is driven by an Executive Officer. Further information on the partnership can be found at www.rsha.com.au.
