Farm safety under the spotlight at Royal Welsh Show

Tony Succamore

Safety on farms and how farmers can protect themselves and their business will be under the spotlight at an upcoming webinar, hosted by FUW Insurance Services Ltd at the virtual Royal Welsh Show. The event, which is open to all, takes place on Wednesday 21 July at 10am via Zoom and will be hosted on the Royal Welsh Show event website.

Keynote speakers on the day include Tony Succamore,Sales and Operations Director of FUW Insurance Services Ltd; Georgina Davis, Business Development Manager (Midlands) at British Engineering Services; Health and Safety Executive representative Christopher Maher and Farm safety expert and instructor Brian Rees. Chairing the webinar is FUW Deputy President and FUW Insurance Services Ltd. board member Ian Rickman.

Speaking ahead of the event, Tony Succamore said: “Whichever way you look at it, we have serious Health and Safety challenges on our farms. Over the last twenty years, other industries such as construction and quarrying have greatly improved their safety records, while unfortunately farming has not.

“It is frightening that you are, despite everything, six times more likely to be killed on a farm than you would on a building site. To keep the spotlight on farm safety we are hosting a special webinar at the Royal Welsh show, which also coincides with Farm Safety Week, and we invite you to join us as we discuss the future of farm safety in Wales and beyond with industry leading experts and highlight what steps you can take to protect yourself, your family and business.”
