The NFU are again running Farm Safety Week this year and are publishing a series of stories highlighting the wide variety of health and safety issues that impact on UK farming.
"Today marks the start of the third annual Farm Safety Week, an initiative launched in 2013 aimed at reducing the toll of accidents which continue to give agriculture the poorest record of any occupation in the UK & Ireland.
"This year’s Farm Safety Week is being supported by a greater number of organisations than ever including the Farm Safety Foundation, Farm Safety Partnership, the Health & Safety Executive, Health & Safety Executive for Northern Ireland and the Health & Safety Authority, Ireland.
"From falls and transport to child safety – Farm Safety Week (6-10 July) offers five days of themed practical advice and guidance."
