On the 15th of January 2024, the second meeting of the Slovenian Community of Practice took place on Zoom. The participants agreed on three key challenges for Slovenian agriculture in the area of health and safety on farms.
Over the next three years, the members will pay particular attention to the safety culture on farms, especially the normalisation of farmers’ risk behaviour. They will also address the problem of low health, pension and social security coverage for Slovenian farmers. The final challenge they will address in depth is the poor and undiscussed mental health of farming family members. The members of the Slovenian Community of Practice have decided to stay in touch and look into statistics, research results and expert reports that could be helpful for their future discussions.
