VIDEO: Injured farmers urge others to play safe

The HSE has produced a short video where people who have suffered serious accidents on farms explain their stories in their own words.

The impactful film has been made as part of the Make the Promise Campaign which urges farmers to make sure they come home safe.

Agriculture remains the most dangerous industry in the country, based on accidents per worker.

The video features Yorkshire farmer’s son Peter Rooke who fell eighteen feet through a roof light onto the concrete floor below him and James Chapman from the West Midlands who lost an arm after his clothing was caught in a PTO shaft.

Mark Mather from Wooller in Northumberland, who lost a leg after a loaded shotgun went off at close range after his ATV overturned, is also interviewed.
