Agricultural Safety Challenge

Aug 27, 2019

2019 marks the 21st year of the annual Agricultural Safety Challenge.   This year's winners were Waitara HIgh School - well done team!

This event focuses on farm safety knowledge and skills.  Teams of students participated in a number of relevant agricultural activities with the ultimate goal of winning the trophy for the year.  NPiS and Rural Support Trust ran an activity which promoted mental wellbering and unpacked the unique stressors of a rural environment.

Other practical agricultural activities included fire safety, firearms safety, livestock handling, quad bike and tractor safety.

This initiative continues to be proudly organised by a collaborative involving ACC, NPiS, Taranaki High Schools, Police, Fire Service, Rural Support Trust Taranaki and Land Based Training.  Thank you again to Francis Douglas Memorial College for hosting.
