Safe Stop: Know the procedure

Safe Stop label tractor cab_63390

The Farm Safety Partnership's 'Safe Stop' Campaign focusses on the importance of following the 'Safe Stop' procedure: 

  • Engage handbrake
  • Controls in neutral
  • Switch off engine
  • Remove key

This awareness initiative is offered to farmers upon receipt of new or second hand machinery from BAGMA-approved dealerships as part of their HSE-approved accredited installation scheme.

This handover will include training the importance of complying with the full ‘Safe Stop’ procedure: handbrake on; controls in neutral; engine off; and keys out.

This message will be re-inforced withthe use of a series of campaign stickers in strategic locations on the vehicle which are designed to act as a visual reminder of this training, long after the dealer has left the farm premises.
