Thanks for visiting the website of the Farm Safety Foundation (Yellow Wellies). We are the charity behind the FARM SAFETY WEEK (17-21 July 2023) and MIND YOUR HEAD (13-17 February 2023) campaigns but we are so much more…
Did You Know?
Farming accounts for 1% of the working population but an alarming 18% of all workplace deaths (HSE Fatal Injuries in Agriculture, Forestry & Fishing Report in GB 2021/2022) A total of 22 farm workers lost their lives on GB farms over the past year. The picture is similar in Northern Ireland where farming accounted for 33% (6 of the 18) reportable workplace fatalities in 2021/2022 (HSENI) and, in the Republic of Ireland, farming accounts for 4% of the workforce but 26% of all workplace fatal incidents.
We are the Farm Safety Foundation, a small UK-wide charity dedicated to raising awareness of farm safety and mental wellbeing in farmers.
