Campfire Podcast Episode 14: “Understanding the mental impact of injuries on farm”

Now streaming on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and below.

On-farm injuries, particularly severe ones, create two immediate, often long-lasting problems – what happens to the farm and, more importantly, what happens to the farmer?
In this episode, we discuss the often long-lasting mental and physical impacts of an injury on the farm – and what you can do to prevent them. 

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act) employers and self-employed persons must notify WorkSafe immediately after becoming aware a notifiable incident has occurred.  If employers/farmers are unsure if they need to report an incident they can call WorkSafe on 13 23 60.
