Let’s work together to reduce farm accidents.

Why Game of the Month?

Each year accidents on farms cause more injuries and deaths than any other workplace in Victoria. The WorkSafe Game of the Month is all about bringing regional communities together to enjoy a game of local sport, while at the same time recognising the importance of farm safety.
