IOSH supports farm safety initiative

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has supported a new initiative from the Farm Safety Partnership.

Its Safe Stop campaign will be hosted at the National Farmers Union (NFU) at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, with a series of stickers being designed to inform machinery users about how to follow the correct actions for a "safe stop".

These include turning the handbrake on, putting the controls in neutral, turning the engine off and removing the key.

IOSH rural industries group vice-chair Alan Plom said: "Although the ‘Safe Stop’ course of action is not a new concept, it is clear from so many accidents that these simple precautions are being overlooked."

Mr Plom explained that delegates will be invited to the workshop to share ideas to improve machinery safety.

He added that IOSH is open to suggestions regarding how they can improve the project and make it more effective.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801645895-ADNFCR
