Al McCone is Engagement Lead at Worksafe, and joins us for an update to his earlier podcast (see link below).
As well as some fascinating stats about when accidents occur and why, he discusses three key things Worksafe recommend to give farmers a ‘softer landing’ in the event of an accident: seatbelts, Crush Prevention Devices (CPDs) on quad bikes, and devices that can autonomously send a signal for help.
In the longer term, Al suggests we start looking at how we work to see if there are changes we can make to reduce the probability of incidents occurring.
