Farm safety

Farmer handling cattle correctly

With the high number of vehicles and machinery and potential for falling from heights, we all understand that farming is a hazardous occupation. It represents just under 2% of the workforce in Great Britain but accounts for around 19% of the reported fatal injuries each year. 

We work with other organisations representing a broad spectrum of agricultural interests as part of the Farm Safety Partnership. 

Does your farm business have its own health and safety policy? Make sure your business is compliant by building your own policy using the free tool from the Farm Safety Foundation.
