The Rural Safety Partnership decided to do something positive about it and make a real difference. Life Safety, Farm Safety, Wellbeing, Health & Safety and Protection.

Criminals don’t care whose lives they ruin in the cities or the countryside. Not only does rural crime have a significant effect on the farming community,it also impacts towns and cities. Victims of rural crime commonly suffer from the theft of valuable tools, machinery, fuel and livestock – all of which criminals look to sell-on quickly for profit.

 Farm Safety

Unfortunately farming has a poor safety record when compared to other sectors of the economy. All farm accidents are sad, but the saddest thing is that they are preventable. By following simple advice you can help prevent accidents that often have devastating consequences for farming families and communities.

The Rural Safety Partnership is working on raising awareness and reducing the risk and harm to farmers, their employees and families faced by those in our Farming industry. Throughout our work, the aim is for the message to remain constant and to work together towards a safer industry. 

Children Safety

Tragically, fatal accidents involving children on farms have been all too common on farms over many years and every year children are killed during agricultural work activities. Agriculture has one of the highest fatal accident rates and is also the only high risk industry that has to deal with the constant presence of children. People often believe that farm children understand farm risks, but most children who die in farm incidents are family members. Please see Child Safety on Farms campaign by HSENI

Personal Safety in the Countryside

The RSP can help you with personal safety advice and safety equipment.

personal-safety

Personal Safety refers to the freedom from physical harm and threat of physical harm, and freedom from hostility, aggression, harassment, and devaluation by members of the academic community. Safety includes worry about being victimised as well as actual incidents.
Rural & Countryside Britain is a wonderful place for work and play and although statistics show that it is safer to walk in the countryside rather than on city streets it still isn’t without risk.

Tackling Rural Crime

For farmers, land-owners and residents of rural and countryside areas, the security of your property and assets is likely to have become a cause for concern.It’s no wonder either, with the cost of rural crime in the UK amounting to tens of millions of pounds every year.

Britain’s Green and sometimes not so Pleasant land

Victims of rural crime commonly suffer from the theft of valuable tools, machinery, fuel and livestock – all of which criminals look to sell-on quickly for profit.

Nuisance and unwanted visitors

Other crimes experienced include fly-tipping, vandalism and arson. Increasingly, action is being taken to reduce the amount of rural crime taking place, such as targeted Police work and new safety campaigns, which focus on analysing criminal trends and encouraging rural communities to take better precautions.

Latest technology and Smart systems

Utilising the latest advances in technology we work to deter, detect and  monitor unwanted visitors giving our Police the help and support it needs.
