Farmsafe WA will continue to play an important role in promoting farm safety in Western Australia with the recent appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer.
Maree Gooch, of Belay Consulting, has taken on the role of Farmsafe WA CEO and is passionate about farm safety.
“I am excited to be working for Farmsafe WA on a number of projects.
“You cannot underestimate the importance of employees and their safety on the farm through good work practices and legislated occupational work health and safety measures,” Ms Gooch said.
Farmsafe WA Chairman Mike Norton said the recent management changes will not impact on the delivery of successful farm safety programs.
“Farmsafe WA will remain a key project provider and promoter of farm safety in Western Australia,” Mr Norton said.
Farmsafe WA is continuing to deliver workshops on Farmer Safety Awareness and has received very positive feedback.
