“As Members of the VFF I would like to thank John Darcy, the VFF’s Senior Farm Safety Advsior for the valued assistance and support he has given us.
John’s assistance, knowledge and delivery has been vital in keeping us up with and delivering farm safety best practice on our property . We do try to do our best, but like so many others just working on the farm and keeping up with the work is overwhelming, so at times we do miss things. You cannot read read all that comes into the office, no time. One thing we will not take any short-cuts on is the safety of all who come onto our farm.
John, Allan Zock, Workplace Relations Advisor, are a wonderful team to work with the farmers of Victoria when vital employer support and information is required.A Victorian dairy farmer.
