About the Rural Safety and Health Alliance
Australia’s Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs) have a long history of investment in health and safety research, development and extension. In 2018 AgriFutures Australia helped establish a formal collaboration between eight RDCs, called the Rural Safety and Health Alliance (RSHA).
The goal of the RSHA is to build the capacity of its members to improve work health and safety in their agricultural industries. To this end, RSHA members share ideas and resources on farm safety, invest collaboratively in research and development where there are significant gaps or opportunities to improve work health and safety on farms, and promote interest in farm safety across the agricultural sector.
The Rural Safety and Health Alliance is a joint initiative of AgriFutures Australia, Australian Eggs, Australian Pork, Australian Wool Innovation, Cotton Research and Development Corporation, Dairy Australia, Grains Research & Development Corporation and Meat & Livestock Australia.
Farmsafe Australia is a valued partner of the Alliance, conducting campaigns and creating quality resources for farmers to raise awareness of health and safety issues in rural communities.
