We coordinate and manage national campaigns including Mind Your Head and Farm Safety Week which, this year, takes place from 20-24 July.
Farm Safety Week is supported by the Farm Safety Foundation, Farm Safety Partnerships, the Health & Safety Executive, Health & Safety Executive for Northern Ireland and Health & Safety Authority, Ireland.
According to the HSE’s annual work-related fatalities in 2019/20, 20 farm workers lost their lives on GB’s farms in 2019/2020.
We can talk farm safety until the cows come home but unless farm workers accept the collective responsibility for making the industry take action to address this poor record, nothing will change…
In order for us to get this message to a wider audience through the press and social media we need people to share their experiences, their thoughts and what they are doing to improve the safety of their workers… If you have a story you would like to share with us or know an individual or organisation that can help us this Farm Safety Week then please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you on Farm_Safety_Foundation@nfumutual.co.uk
