The #SeeItChangeIt campaign was kick-started at NFU conference yesterday in a room of hi-vis jacket wearing farmers who each pledged to change at least one thing to improve the safety and wellbeing on their farm, consider poor worker attitudes to safety and challenging poor practice.

 

It is running along the lines of ‘see the risk and change it’.

Outgoing NFU president Meurig Raymond said: “The #SeeItChangeIt campaign will get farmers actively looking for risks on farm and then doing something about it – whether it is a promise to check their PTO shaft every week, wear a helmet every time they ride an ATV, or simply just to keep their mobile phone charged and on their person.

 

“Stress and depression are among many other illnesses that can massively impact your life and work, and we must be able to recognise when we need help.

“The NFU urges farmers to get behind the #SeeItChangeIt campaign by filling out a promise card – tweet us, stick it on your fridge or simply keep it on your bedside table – but use it to make one change that will improve your own wellbeing and that of the farming industry.”

 

The NFU called on the community to ‘turn the tide against an acceptance of poor practice industry wide’.
