Primary Producer Safety Rebate Scheme is now available
The $2 million Primary Producer Safety Rebate Scheme became available from 1 October 2021.
Under the scheme, rebates of up to $5,000 are available for eligible items that remove or reduce the risk to safety caused by the following hazards in the agriculture sector:
- being hit by moving objects;
- body stressing (manual handling/muscular stress);
- falls, trips and slips;
- hitting objects with a part of the body; and
- vehicle incidents.
The Tasmanian Government is encouraging small-to-medium or sole trader Tasmanian businesses within the agriculture sector that have farming as their main source of income to take part.
