Concern over the personal injury risks posed by accidents in the Borders led Police Scotland to this week work alongside a number of bodies, including Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and NFU Scotland, in order to try and address the issue.

The drive, which was called the Farm Fire Safety and Crime Prevention Event, placed especial focus on preventing fire-related agricultural workplace accidents in the Borders, and was available to a range of employers, landowners and interested parties working in and around the farming industry in the Scottish Borders.

The event looked in depth at the issue of fire safety and the risk of burn injuries in farming and showcased a number of safety innovations as well as practical demonstrations of the kind of preventative action farmers can take to improve safety in the agricultural workplace.

"Farm safety and security is a major concern for emergency services across the Borders. Not only are there considerable risks to life and property, particularly in relation to farm fires and incidents, there is also a significant financial impact for farmers which can have a knock on effect for local economies," commented a representative of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

The event also looked in detail at the issue of farm security and theft in the Borders, which is something that many farmers have highlighted as a major area of concern in recent times.
