Safer Farms Families Futures Network

Jane Forster

The Safer Farms Families Futures (S3F) Network was officially launched on 31st March. Farm owners and managers from across the region came together to be a part of a Victorian industry’s first grower-to-grower learning network, that will tackle some of the critical work health and safety issues experienced by individuals on farms across the region.

Participants in the S3F network will collaborate and receive support from specialists to take practical steps that accelerate the adoption of safer practices on their farms. In conjunction, training and development will be available to increase confidence in managing safety issues and meeting their WHS obligations and responsibilities.

If you would like to know more about the S3F network or lodge your interest in participating, please contact Jane Foster from ORM Ph: 0438 416 176 email: or Kelly Angel from BCG Ph: 03 5492 2787 email
