Farming is often overlooked by the general public when it comes to the perception of high-risk occupations, but according to Safe Work Australia between 15% to 12% of Australian worker fatalities occurred in the farming industry during 2009-2015 (source: safeworkaustralia.gov.au).
These figures are all the more concerning when you realise 15% of fatalities are occurring in an industry that only makes up 2% of Australian workers (source: www.employment.gov.au).
These statistics have promoted national campaigns to raise awareness of Farm Safety dangers and requirements, with FarmSafe Australia recommending that First Aid kits for the farm should be purchased to meet regulations for the number of people that work on the farm and the types of injury that occur, which include:
- snake and spider bites
- sprains, cuts, burns and broken bones
- crush injury to hands, feet arms and legs
- eye injury
- amputation of arms and legs in unguarded PTOs, grain augers, post hole diggers and drivers
- quad bike crush injury
