The President of ICMSA, John Comer, has said that the statistics on farm deaths and accidents are an ever-present reproach and challenge to the whole  sector and he implored farmers to deliberately and consciously identify and improve even one safety feature on their farms to coincide with this year’s Farm Safety Fortnight: “I’m asking every single farmer to proactively change one aspect of their farming operation in a way that lessens any safety risks associated with it. We have to learn to take our time and be willing to lose a minute in our working day because – and the statistics bear this out – it’s very possible to lose your life in a minute on working farms”

Ends        14 April 2015.
