At their first meeting, the Agriculture Workforce Working Group (AWWG) proposed that investigations take place into a national safety induction program for agriculture and related industries.   

The meat industry has been chosen to develop and pilot such a program, with consultation currently underway to explore potential models.

You have the opportunity to participate in a consultation session to be held on Thursday 6 June where we will discuss what a national safety induction program could look like. It follows an initial session held by MINTRAC with subject matter experts earlier in the month. 

If you are interested in attending, please email Georgia Smith [email protected]

A series of questions and options for potential models will also be made available for feedback on the project webpage soon to gather further stakeholder insights.
