The 2020 Farmsafe Virtual Conference theme is: Farming for a future


This theme has been chosen because year after year, agriculture is rated one of the most dangerous industries to work in. There is obviously a high risk profile in farming that will not significantly change. We work with heavy loads, we work with large animals, we work with chemicals, we work with heavy machinery, we work at heights and in confined spaces. We work in the elements and we often work alone, in remote locations.


To ensure the future of farming, we need to be much more proactive in educating our farmers, increasing their risk awareness and ensuring sound advice for protecting their employees and members of their families is available. 


The Farmsafe Australia Conference 2020 will have a strong focus on risk assessment and awareness, planning and mitigation, particularly in light of a year of drought, bushfire, floods and COVID-19. The topics covered will include most of the usual high risk issues, however mental health awareness and support will be an overarching consideration to be brought into most conversations as it underpins the overall well-being of our workforce.

Call for abstracts close 11:59pm AEST, Sunday 13 September 2020. 

Abstract Submission

We welcome submission of abstracts for presentations relevant to the conference themes.

Priority will be given to presentations that offer critical or reflective comment rather than purely program or descriptive papers.

Papers that have clear public health care significance will be considered and accepted in association with the Conference theme and outcomes of the presentation.

 

Papers will be accepted and considered in three domains:

  • Research - e.g. research program

  • Program - e.g. delivery services, innovation of farm practices/activities, example of work

  • Policy - e.g. advocacy, policy development, changing rules

Abstracts submitted must clearly show how the virtual presentation will present key learnings and outcomes in association with the conference themes.


We encourage submitters to think about the story they are trying to relay, and how they will make the presentation dynamic to keep the audience engaged.

It is the submitting author’s responsibility to ensure that the abstract uploaded to the server is the correct version.


Online abstract document loading is completed via browsing your selected computer drive. Abstracts submitted for presentation will be published exactly as received and should be checked for spelling and grammar prior to submission. Do not submit a version with ‘track changes’ active.

All presenters must register at the time of confirming their acceptance presentation offer and pay the conference registration fee.
