This week is National Farm Safety Week, an initiative to raise awareness of farm safety issues in rural communities across Australia.
The NCIS is a valuable tool that supports the development of death and injury prevention strategies by providing access to coronial data for death investigation and research.
NCIS Fatal facts is a unique tool that allows public access to Australian coronial recommendations. Users can search the tool by a variety of category tags. A search using the Work related category can identify summaries of farm-related deaths and associated coronial recommendations made to improve public health and safety.
A variety of organisations use NCIS data to conduct research into farm-related deaths. Links to relevant research publications are available on the NCIS website.
