A new series of seminars on farm safety will take place at LAMMA ’18, which returns to the East of England Showground, Peterborough on January 17 and 18, 2018.

The seminars will take place in the Farm Safety Zone, a new area dedicated to help reduce the high number of deaths and injuries on UK farms.
