New Hope farm safety workshop
New Hope Group ran their third farm safety workshop in partnership with LifeFlight last November. The workshop series aims to combine local farming experience with LifeFlight’s expertise in first response care.
Led by experienced LifeFlight paramedic Gavin Clark and New Acland Mine safety representative, Stewart Sherrington, the workshop focused on the importance of having proper preventative and first-response safety measures in place for farmers working around animals.
During the workshop Maclagan farmer Jenny Ballon shared her firsthand insight into how vital safety considerations can be when dealing with animals on the farm.
The next workshop is scheduled for early 2018.
