Need

Australia’s Rural Industries, represented by nine Rural Research and Development Corporations, are leading the way on health and safety improvement through effective research, development & extension (RD&E).

The Rural Safety and Health Alliance will facilitate cross-sectoral RD&E to minimise the negative impacts associated with death, injury and illness, and maximise the benefits of a productive, healthy and safe rural workforce.

Objectives

1. Key features of the alliance include setting clear priorities to better target research, development and extension, strengthening industry leadership and developing a ‘shark tank’ funding model, where applicants work together to pitch projects for funding.
