It’s Farm Safety Week and this year the approach is different, the campaign celebrates when things go right, sharing good practices and demonstrating what ‘good’ looks like in relation to working practices on the farm. Farming has one of the poorest safety records of any occupation in the UK and Ireland, and this week is about recognising this and working to address the issue. The risk areas covered by the campaign have expanded to include: child safety, mental health and sun protection.
At Wallaces we take safety very seriously and we’re doing our bit for the physical and mental wellbeing of farming families by increasing understanding of how to support those dealing with mental health issues in the industry.

The message this year is: Your Health. Your Safety. Your Choice.
