    Sheen is a small village, strung out along the ridge between the Dove and Manifold valleys in Staffordshire. The majority of the village exists on agriculture, but a small engineering works can also be found here.

    The farms in Sheen are places of work just like any other, but can be very dangerous. In fact, agriculture has one of the worst fatal accident records of all the major employment sectors in the region. Farm workers are not the only ones who can become injured or even killed in farm accidents – members of the public are also at risk whenever they visit farms.

    Causes of farm accidents

    Some of the most common causes of injuries on farms include:

    • Accidents involving farm vehicles
      Tractors, combine harvesters, forklift trucks, quad bikes and 4×4 vehicles are all commonly used on farms. People can become injured when these vehicles collide with them, crush them or run them over. Accidents involving farm vehicles can cause a wide range of injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries and whiplash.
    • Accidents involving farm equipment
      The machinery used in the agricultural industry can be very dangerous and people can injure themselves on blades and transmission belts.
    • Injuries caused by falling objects
      People can become injured or killed by objects falling from heights. Falling hay bales and trees and collapsing buildings can all cause serious injuries.
    • Injuries caused by dangerous livestock
      Large farm animals cause approximately 8% of all farm-related deaths. Dangerous farm animals include, but are not limited to, donkeys, goats, cattle and horses.
