Free Farm Safety Sessions

For farmers and their workers

These sessions are a joint initiative of Safe Farming Tasmania, the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association and WorkSafe Tasmania.

Who the sessions are aimed at

These safety sessions are aimed at farmers and their workers, and anyone else who operates a quad bike or tractor.


  • Crush protection device manufacturers David Robertson (Quadbar) and Matthew Tiplady (ATV Lifeguard) will explain their products, and provide tips on how to correctly install, use, and maintain them.
  • TasTAFE teachers will explain quad bike and tractor safety, provide practical advice on how to operate the vehicles safely, and cover the importance of proper training.
  • RAW (Rural Alive and Well) will discuss mental health, what to look out for and the importance of acting if you think someone may be experiencing difficulties, how RAW can help, and what you can do for your own mental health and wellbeing.
  • The Drug Education Network will discuss drugs and alcohol in the workplace, and what to do if you suspect one of your workers has a problem.

Dates, times and venues

All sessions will be interactive, giving participants the opportunity to speak with and ask questions of each presenter.
