Farm Safety Week 2018 #FarmSafetyWeek

It's Farm Safety Week

Agriculture represents about 1.4% of the UK's workforce, however shockingly accounts for approximately 20% of all workplace fatalities*

Last year there were 29 fatalities to workers in agriculture. That's 29 too many. Despite more awareness around farm safety, farmers of all ages are still taking risks when working and this has to stop. People are losing their lives in incidents that in many cases could have been avoided.

In support of Farm Safety Week 2018, we're offering an automatic 10% discount this week only on our tractor checklists and kits.

The Good to Go Safety Tractor Checklist helps ensure that tractors are well maintained and regularly checked, proving invaluable in the event of an HSE inspection following an accident. The checks may also help reduce the risk of an accident occurring in the first place, as possible defects are highlighted and repairs carried out before they deteriorate further. To find out more about the range visit Good to Go Safety or watch our 1 minute video below.
