From October to December 2019, the focus is on working at height. The FSP is sharing guidance on how best to approach any work at height, following these key messages:
2019 farm safety campaign
The NFU and partners in the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP) have committed to work towards reducing farm work place fatal accidents by 50% by 2023.
This focus on working at height forms part of a year of campaigning activity which has also seen the NFU work with the Farm Safety Partnership to highlight the importance of working safely with transport and machinery, and around livestock, and ensuring the safety of children on farm.
The aim of the campaign is to highlight changes that can be made by farmers to farm work place behaviours which if implemented have the potential to significantly improve the safety record of agriculture and save lives often at minimal cost.
