Farming safety gains wiped out, new statistics reveal

A sharp rise in the number of people killed or seriously injured on British farms has wiped out previously achieved safety gains.

New figures released by HSE show that in Britain between April 2009 and March 2010, the number of reported major injuries, such as broken bones or amputations, rose to 640, up from 599 the previous year. The number of major injuries has now increased by more than 40 per cent in the last three years.
