The campaign aims to get farmers and growers actively looking for risks on farm, and using simple and cost effective ways to eliminate them.

The NFU announced the new campaign at the farm safety workshop this afternoon, which looked to tackle stress and mental wellbeing as well as practical safety when working in agriculture.

Each person attending the session filled out a #SeeItChangeIt Promise Card, selecting one thing they would do to improve their safety and wellbeing on their farm.

The #SeeItChangeIt campaign will get farmers actively looking for risks on farm and then doing something about it – whether it’s a promise to check their PTO shaft every week, wear a helmet every time they ride an ATV, or simply just to keep their mobile phone charged and on their person.
