EDUCATION


Imagine a training course where you are taken out of the classroom and right into an accident scene. The pressure is on; you have a matter of minutes to work out what has happened at each “scene”, decide what immediate action should be taken, contemplate first aid implications and explore what measures should be taken to prevent the accident happening in the future.

The Farm Safety Foundation has developed a unique educational programme which is being delivered at agricultural colleges throughout the UK. Since May 2015, a total of 2,202 farming students in 34 colleges have received our Introduction to Farm Safety training.

Remember I make my own decisions. I can work anywhere but have just one chance at life

In response to feedback from colleges and participants alike, the Foundation has invested in getting this training accredited by nationally recognised awarding organisation Lantra and, since September 2016, 900 agriculture students have undertaken, and passed, the now LANTRA accredited version of the course.

2017 looks set to be just as busy, with 30 dates scheduled and an additional five colleges on the reserve list.
