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.
