Farm Risk "I've always done it that way"

As the UK’s leading rural insurer, we understand the pressure farmers are under. But cutting corners and taking unnecessary risks can lead to accidents, injuries and fatalities that are often simple to prevent. That’s why we’re working closely with all of our customers and changing the way the farming industry thinks about safety.

  • Over the past five years, 10% of all fatal injuries in farming were as a result of contact with machinery*
  • Falling from height or being struck by a falling object account for nearly 30% of all fatalities in agriculture*
  • Injuries from ATV accidents are, at best, life-changing, but often fatal
