State Election 2020 Scorecard: Safety
AgForce is seeking improved collaboration by the state government with industry on farm safety issues, rather than a focus on compliance enforcement. We are also seeking a Farm Safety rebate program for making quad-bikes and their operation safer.
With the exception of the LNP, who have promised they will work with AgForce and other rural stakeholders to continue improving quad bike safety, none of the parties have announced a strong farm safety agenda within the campaign.
AgForce encourages the parties to consider this important issue and clarify their positions before election day.
