Alan Goddard, Managing Director of Cornish Mutual, said: “As a trusted insurer working in communities across the South West region and remaining so heavily involved in the agricultural sector, reducing the number of serious injuries and deaths on regional farms is a high priority for us as a company.

“These practical workshop events are particularly useful for farm workers as a refresher, or to help educate young farmers looking to gain an understanding of best practice.”
