Workcover Rebate for Sheep and Cattle Producers

Sheep and beef cattle farming is one of a number of high risk industries WorkCover is working with to improve workplace safety, return to work and injury management.

Sheep and beef cattle farming presents risks in animal handling, quad bikes, occupational diseases, tractors, implements and attachments, as well as potential dangers to children.

There are 26,000 businesses operating in sheep and beef cattle farming and the industry is expected to grow at a rate of 0.9 per cent annually from 2013 to 2018.

NSW Workcover special rebate for farmers receives additional funding

Due to overwhelming interest shown by sheep and beef cattle farmers to improve safety on their farms, the NSW Government has decided to allocate further funds to this important initiative.

As a result, the special promotion rebate for sheep and beef farmers will continue until 30 April 2014.

Applicants can download  an application form here

The applicant’s main business (primary source of income) must be sheep and beef cattle farming, hobby farmers are not eligible.

Applicants who:

  • are employed by the supplier of the product being claimed will not be accepted
  • have secondary employment will be asked to provide evidence of the size or income generated from their farm/business (eg business transactions).

Applicants must declare they have implemented and installed the safety solution at the time of lodging their application. WorkCover inspectors may undertake visits to confirm the solution has been implemented in accordance with the declaration. WorkCover will take further action where false declarations are identified.
