Farmers First Aid

Agriculture has one of the worst fatal accident and occupational ill-health records of any major employment sector. In 2010 to 2011 the HSE reported that 42 people were killed as a result of farming and other agriculture related injuries during the year. Less than 1.5% of the UK's working population are employed in the agriculture sector yet the sector is responsible for between 15 and 20% of all work place fatalities each year.

It is these shocking figures that prompted St John Ambulance Cymru to develop a first aid course specifically for farmers that deals with the most common types of injuries that occur in the agriculture sector.
