Deadline looms for WorkSafe Farm Safety Calendar Competition

Entries for the 2022 WorkSafe Queensland Farm Safety Calendar Competition close on Friday 24 June, and primary school children are encouraged to enter the annual drawing competition.

Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace urged Queensland kids to use their drawing skills to raise awareness about farm safety.

"It's about getting creative to help save lives on farms," Ms Grace said.

"The masterpieces by our 12 winning creators go into the 2023 calendar to be displayed in homes and workplaces across the state as a year-round reminder to work and play safely on farms.

"It's a fun competition but a serious message. The agriculture industry employs around three per cent of Queensland's workers but accounts for more than 30 percent of workplace deaths.

The winners will be announced in October.

The full story is available on the Queensland Government website.
