Now streaming on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and below.

Safety first – what’s the rush?

Aurora Dairies, one of Australia’s largest milk producers, operates over more than 16,000 hectares across 33 pasture based dairy farms. Led by CEO Ben James, they know that making changes to the safety practices in your farming workplaces can be a major challenge.
After three all-terrain vehicle incidents in 2018, Aurora Dairies made massive changes to their use of ATVs.
By incorporating low-cost technology and working alongside their farm managers and farm teams, they geo-fenced their properties – and later, removed quad bikes all together.

Listen now to learn how the Aurora Dairies team implemented these major changes in order to improve the mental health and physical safety of their many employees.
