Program

Primary Industries Health and Safety

Research Organisation

The University of Sydney

Objective Summary

Project is to provide: 1. A concise and consistent description of the WHS priorities for the primary industries, which can be updated periodically as priorities are addressed. 2. Contextualisation of WHS priorities in terms of nominated sectors, allowing those sectors to plan a targeted approach to addressing the priorities and comparison of priorities across sectors. 3. A ‘library’ of existing strategies, products tips and tools addressing WHS priorities. 4. A model by which additional primary industry sectors can be assessed in the future in terms of WHS risks. 5. Recommendations on future work to address gaps in current arrangements, thereby delivering improved WHS.
