Monday 6th July marks the start of Farm Safety Week where the industry comes together to promote safety.
This is made more poignant by the HSE releasing their annual fatality statistics for 2014/15, where 37 people lost their lives in agricultural related accidents.
We shouldn't focus on safety for just one week, but lets use this week to remind ourselves of its importance.
There will be lots of information, guidance and survivor stories shared over the week, and you can get involved over social media using the hastag #FarmSafetyWeek.
The NAAC have put together short guidance notes for contractors on each of the days topics. Share them with your collegues and employees to promote safe working practices.
Wednesday: TRANSPORT & ATV
Thursday: CRUSH INJURIES
Friday: CHILD SAFETY
