Police investigation launched after man dies on Yorkshire farm #FarmSafety

Emergency services were called to Church Farm on Philips Lane in Darrington at around 4.20pm last Friday.

 

A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman confirmed the force was leading an investigation into a work-related incident at the farm.

 

She said: "A 68-year-old man was taken by air ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary with a serious head injury. He sadly passed away from his injuries."

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has also been notified.

 

A spokesman said: "HSE is aware of the incident and is assisting the police who have primacy."

 

The incident comes as Warwickshire-based farmer James Chapman published a Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust report ’How farming safety can be improved’.

Mr Chapman, who works on a 182ha (450-acre) arable farm, lost his left arm in 2005 after becoming entangled in an unguarded PTO shaft while working on a friend’s farm.

 

Since then he has worked to educate others in the industry about farm safety through Young Farmers and the Health and Safety Executive and was awarded an MBE for services to farming in 2012.
