The survey will lead to a better understanding of emerging work health and safety risks to farming communities in New South Wales.

Farming community members eligible for the survey include people who work on farms and who may be owner-operators, farm managers, workers and contractors (vets, crop sprayers, consultants and the like).

The survey asks about business practices and health and well-being changes that have been made on-farm, and any proposed changes for the future. The survey will also explore how farming communities access information to inform their on-farm decision making.

Participation will involve completing the survey online, which should take about 15 minutes.

For each completed survey, $10 will be donated to the Country Women's Association of NSW (up to 300 surveys).
