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.
