Harvest Safety Course

Harvest is a potentially dangerous time.  New, untrained workers, more equipment and limited time schedule raise the number of avoidable accidents occurring during this period.  Approximately 50 people a year are killed on Britain’s farms and most of them are between 18 and 25 yrs old.
