This unit addresses the health and safety concerns commonly encountered by the agricultural workforce in rural and remote Australia. The poor physical and behavioural health of rural Australians is well established. This unit aims to improve understanding of the common causes of disease, mental illness and work related injury that adversely affect the health and well-being of the human resource in agricultural industries, including obesity and diabetes, cancers, zoonotic infections, physical trauma, behavioural health, addiction and agricultural safety. A better knowledge of these factors will improve the effectiveness of current strategies aimed at improving the health outcomes of farming communities and the agricultural workforce.
