The agricultural sector accounts for 16 per cent of the fatal injuries suffered by workers across the UK, according to the Health and Safety Executive.
This is a shockingly high figure, as agriculture accounts for less than 2 per cent of the UK’s workforce. These figures demonstrate the poor health and safety record of many British farms, and show that all too often employers fail to adhere to the health and safety regulations set out to protect employees.
Accidents on a farm can result in many serious injuries, and there are a number of hazards that can cause them, from vehicles to machinery, tools, exposure to hazardous materials, falling objects and more. If you have been injured on a farm, or have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, contact Accident Advice Helpline.
