Farm Safety Week
|As we prepare for Farm Safety Week (starts on Monday 24 until 28 July) the sad news in the media is that 2 farmers have been killed in 2 days - one a 33-year-old man who died after becoming trapped under a trailer in Devon, the other an incident in Essex on 19 July. HSE has also just notified us of a farmer killed by a cow in a cattle crush on 7 July. More details will be posted soon.|
Look out for the publicity, articles and tweets on a different topic each day next week. These will include case studies and 'Top Tips' on Machinery, ATV's and Transport; Working at Heights and Stacking; Livestock and Children on Farms. IOSH will also be covering ill health, planning and dealing with emergencies, and Next Steps.
Please retweet our tweets too and use the hashtag #FarmSafetyWeek.
