Farms the most dangerous family homes in the UK

RPLC member, Professor Sally Shortall, Newcastle University’s Duke of Northumberland Chair of Rural Economy, contends that we can only make farms safer by understanding the mind-set of the people who live and work there.  So far this year, forty six people have died in accidents on farms, making them the most dangerous family homes in the UK.

Giving her inaugural public lecture “People and the land: understanding the family farm” on Thursday 16 November, Professor Shortall says understanding the culture of farming families can make farms safer places to live and work.
