Harriet Bremner and Alex Thomas

Spinning yarns that save lives.

“I’ve been caring for my Dad since I was 15 years old, and I’m on a mission to prevent what happened to him and our family from happening to anyone else’s.
 
#PlantASeedForSafety is a rural social change initiative that puts health, safety and wellbeing front of mind, and ultimately, brings people home to their loved ones at the end of each day.”

  • “I find safety an ongoing issue with all work environments, but it can be heightened when children are around workplaces. 

We stick to general safety around the farm such as fencing off dams near houses, fencing around backyards that connect to the laneway, teaching the kids the importance of looking for vehicles driving around the farm and sheds, and keeping them within enclosed yards and areas when working amongst livestock.

It’s really hard to completely safe proof any workplace, but if we keep teaching them the importance of safety we hope it’ll resonate with them if they get into any sort of unsafe situation.”

One in particular, at Old Parnaroo, I was threading pipe. I had someone there to give me a hand and I was going faster than I should have, flat to the board… I remember something break inside of me…and that still stands out. 

I just can't imagine myself being any different... but if I lived my life again, I'd make more of an effort to look after myself with regards to hard work."

  • STOP THE PRESS! 

Don’t spend a minute more on Google trying to work out what the bloody hell it means to become ‘compliant’. 
 
You – and everyone else around you – already know exactly what good health + safety looks like because (here’s a secret, shhh): 

***you’ve already got a pretty good track record of coming home safely at the end of each day***. 

Safety means different things to different people, but you + your brains trust know your place better than anyone else does. 

Ask yourselves: 

What could go wrong? 

How? 

What are we currently doing about it? 

What else do we need to do? 

GO!!!
