From January 2009, the HSE will be asking farmers around the country to make a very special promise. “The promise to come home safe”.

Figures published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in its annual report, 'Fatal injuries in farming, forestry and horticulture 2007/08' show that 42 people were killed as a result of farming and other agriculture-related activities in 2007/08. This is 42 too many.

The Greenyear experts focus on seven key areas of agricultural and farming safety:

  • Tractors and Transport
  • Animals
  • Chemicals
  • Farmers and Workers
  • Field operations and lone working
  • Buildings and yards
  • Machinery
