YFCs are being asked to pledge their commitment to putting the training on their club programmes during the 2017-18 membership year.

The training, which has been developed with the Farm Safety Foundation, organisers of Farm Safety Week, has been created to ensure the next generation of farmers is more aware of the dangers and can help to instigate changes.

Farming continues to have one of the poorest safety records of any occupation in the UK and Ireland but all the main farming organisations are working together during the week to address this.


“The Farm Safety Curve training module is a fun and interactive training session with a serious message,” said Ed Ford, Essex young farmer and chairman of NFYFC. “It could save someone’s life and we want all our YFCs to commit to putting the training on their 2017-18 club programmes. We want the world to know that young farmers are dedicated to farm safety.”
