Farmer dies after large bale ‘fell on him’

A farm worker has died after a large straw bale fell on him whilst he was unloading a vehicle.

 

The incident happened on Saturday, February 11 on a farm in Norfolk.

 

It came as the second tragedy from a falling bale in the last six weeks.

 

 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) encouraged all workers involved with moving bales to follow safety guidance.

 

A spokesman said: “Use properly designed, constructed and maintained bale handling equipment and trailers or vehicles that allow loads to be secured on them.

 

“Always de-stack the bales in the reverse order of stacking.”
