G'day Shane Webcke here, Queensland's Work Safety Ambassador.
It's a fact that only 3% of Queenslanders work on farms, but nearly 30% of workplace deaths happen on them. And every week 17 agricultural workers are injured seriously enough to need at least a week off work.
If you work on the land, please stop and think about doing your job safely. Because those few seconds could save your life - and your livelihood.
