Scottish farmers urged to strap up during harvest

Farmers across Scotland are being reminded to wear safety straps when driving their tractors, especially during the busy harvest period.

Not wearing a lap strap or seat restraint puts farmers at greater risk of being thrown from the cab and crushed between the tractor and the ground. They are also putting themselves at risk of serious injury from being thrown around inside the cab.
