Abstract:
This Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust report made the following observations/recommendations regarding farm safety:
  • Farmers don't recognise risk to health and safety
  • Correct safe working procedures are not always known for the tasks being carried out
  • A lack of continuous development has led to a gap in safety knowledge
  • Fear of the regulator is preventing engagement
  • Safety needs to be practical
  • Agricultural education needs to integrate safety at every level
  • A safe farm is a profitable farm
