About Grow Home Safe

While it is recognized that rates of harm have been increasing in horticulture, published data for the sector is wrapped up within the statistics for the wider agricultural sector. Grow Home Safe aims to provide growers with horticulture-specific information to base their risk management and business decisions on.

Grow Home Safe takes an evidence-based approach to help identify and address the safety and well-being issues that growers across horticulture and viticulture are facing today, by following four key steps: Understand – Intervene – Support – Lead.

Improving our understanding of the various factors involved in injuries and accidents enables the development of well-targeted interventions to reduce harm. The industry community is the best source of knowledge about how to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, and the Grow Home Safe website facilitates the sharing of horticulture-specific health and safety tools and resources.
