A farm safety event was held on the evening of the 25th April 2012 at the National Pavilion of Wales, Pontrhydfendigaid.
The event was made up of visual and ‘hands-on’ demonstrations, including safety simulators, accident reconstructions and hazard perception workshops. These were used to highlight and emphasise farm safety issues. A number of agencies were also pzresent to raise awareness of health and mental issues affecting the farming community. Ceredigion Comprehensive School pupils taking part in Agricultural Studies attended the afternoon session and as up-and-coming agricultural sector workers of the future, they enjoyed and appreciated this opportunity. The evening session was also well attended, despite unfavourable weather conditions, by the Ceredigion farming community with strong support from Ceredigion YFC members.
