Until September 2008, Worksafe had exemptions for farms not to operate as other businesses/industries when it came to OHS.

Some good facts and important info are contained within this website from Farmsafe.

Jodie Bond's insight:

The resource industry cops a lot of slack over how many accidents/deaths occur however I have worked in both the farming industry and resource industry and I know for certain that mining & oil and gas maybe more hazardous but their safety systems certainly counteract and obviously work as the Agriculture, Forestry  and Fishing industry certainly have far more accidents!

Father, two sons still critical after farm accident

Father, two sons still critical after farm accident | Jodie's OHS Quest Adventure - Whats important to me!! | Scoop.it
A father and his two sons are still clinging to life in hospital more than 24 hours after an accident injured 10 people on a farm east of Melbourne.
Jodie Bond's insight:

Before I worked within the resource industry I didn't know much about working within confined spaces, I have climbed into tanks and silos to assist in repairs and maintenance while I was on the farm.

If more and more farmers were made aware of the hazards involved with certain tasks accidents like this wouldn't happen. Farmers are not stupid, they value education however somewhere along the line the communication breaks down in regards to these sorts of issues.
