Cockermouth farm safety event aims to cut deaths

Farmers are being urged to attend a free safety event after new figures revealed an agricultural worker is killed or seriously injured in Cumbria almost every fortnight. HSE statistics show there have been nine deaths and 95 serious injuries in the county during the past five years.

The event at Lakeland Livestock Centre in Cockermouth on Tuesday 9 November will offer tips on staying safe. Practical demonstrations will focus on handling livestock, workplace transport, quad bikes, roof work, manual handling and machinery.
