Overview in brief

Over familiarity can often lead to complacency. This short course covers the basic yet effective steps you can take to minimise risk and make your farm a safer place to live and work.

The finer details

The course covers non-technical skills and how they can be used to improve farm safety. These skills include situation awareness, decision making, and task management. A pre-course and post-course survey must be completed to track changes in attitude and behaviours after undertaking the course. Upon successful completion, a Lantra certificate of training will be available to download and print.
