Farm Safety Ambassadors are a vital part of what we do.

There is nothing more powerful than meeting someone who has real life experience of a farming accident. Ambassadors are volunteers from all walks of life who have been affected by an accident or serious injury and who are willing to share their experiences with young farmers nationwide and encourage them to challenge poor or unsafe practices.

We are very lucky to have the support of individuals who are willing to share their experiences and expertise with young farmers nationwide and encourage them to challenge poor or unsafe practices. These are our Farm Safety Ambassadors.
