‘I could have died’: Farmer rethinks farm safety after accident – Farming UK News

A dairy farmer who suffered a serious machinery accident earlier this year has highlighted how it made him rethink his attitude to farm safety.

Second generation Worcestershire dairy farmer Chris Heath suffered life-threatening injuries when he was propelled from the tractor he was driving.

Still moving backwards, the hundred horsepower tractor – with a front-end loader and sheer grab also attached – ran straight over him.

Chris suffered injuries that included a pelvis fractured in four places, three displaced vertebrae, a dislocated shoulder, six broken ribs and serious internal crush injuries to his bowel.
