Safety First — Wurzels star in Farm Safety Song

Iconic band “The Wurzels” has teamed up with students at Moreton Morrell College to produce a farm safety music video promoting farm safety. The video promotes the “Yellow Wellies Campaign” of the Farm Safety Foundation/ NFU Mutual. The campaign asks “Who Would Fill Your Boots?” to farmers in the case of injury or death at work.

According to the UK Health and Safety Executive, 27 people died in farm accidents in the year to April 2014. Farming often involves working long hours with Heavy machinery, livestock, exposed to the elements.

Whilst farming accounts for 1.5% of the UK’s workforce, it accounts for 15-20% of workplace fatalities.

Have a safe day.
