The Farm Safety Partnership consists of organisations representing a broad spectrum of agricultural interests, including the large farming membership organisations; auctioneers; training providers; farming press; and machinery dealers.
Partners discuss how to co-ordinate activities to increase safety awareness, whilst tailoring delivery to engage farmers in specific sectors in the most appropriate way. Organisations involved in the partnership are encouraged to develop unique and complimentary ways to engage with farmers, their workers and other people who may have an influence on farm safety. Throughout our work, the aim is for the message to remain constant and to work together towards a safer industry.
The aims of the partnership are to:
- To provide leadership to improve the safety of farms and allied industries.
- To reduce the numbers of deaths and major injuries to farmers, workers and anyone else coming into contact with farming activities.
In 2018, the partnership set a target to reduce the number of farming fatalities by at least 50% by the summer of 2023.
Organisations wishing to join the partnership should read the farm safety charter on the related documents tab. The organisation should be willing to sign up to this charter and be willing to play an active role, both within their own sphere of influence and with the broader campaigns run by the partnership.
