A farm is considered the most dangerous workplace, with farmers more likely than any other worker to be killed at work. AgriKids has developed classroom resources, storybooks, and a gaming app to educate children about farm safety. Having now educated over 24,000 children in farm safety, AgriKids’ ambition is to create a farm safety culture that is instinctive and widespread, significantly reducing accidents and deaths that occur on farms.
“Being part of the SEI Awards programme 2019 gives credibility to the mission I’ve been on with AgriKids for the past four years. I am so passionate and committed to making the agriculture sector safer and the impact this will have. SEI’s support is invaluable not only to me personally and to AgriKids as an organisation but to ensuring a safer future on our farms for everyone.”
