||To identify preferred farm injury prevention strategies from a producers' viewpoint, a sample of 506 Tasmanian farmers responded to a questionnaire which assessed their preference for broad approaches to reduce farm-related injuries and the provision of safety information. The main approaches suggested were education and common sense. Other options were increased commodity prices and modifications to existing workers compensation arrangements. In ranking potential mechanisms for the dissemination of information related to farm injury prevention, the vast majority of farmers selected fact sheets as their first preference, with field day sessions and seminars or courses as the next options. This study illustrates that farmers have specific preferences for the manner in which safety information is disseminated.
