Your chance to save farming lives
The Farm Safety Partnership works tirelessly to engage with the local farming community, drive up health and safety standards, and significantly reduce work-related deaths, injuries and illness on local farms.
We have been supported by a range of private, public and voluntary organisations, but we need more help to promote our life-saving messages, and that’s why we’re inviting businesses and organisations to get involved.
So, if your business or organisation operates in Northern Ireland, why not become a Farm Safety Partnership Affiliate?
By supporting us, you will help raise the profile of farm safety in Northern Ireland, and demonstrate your organisation’s desire to improve safety for the farmers of today and tomorrow. It will also send out a clear corporate social responsibility message.

Businesses and organisations can include:
- those who employ part-time farmers or farm family members
