Farmers are being reminded to stop and think when working on a farm.

According to the Heath and Safety Authority, 12 people have been killed so far this year in farming accidents.

Accident support group, Embrace Farm, says it's vital they think about what they're doing as something life changing can happen in seconds.

They're making the call as part of Farm Safety Week, which aims to reduce death and serious injuries on farms.

Peter Gohery from the group, lost his left leg in a farming accident 10 years ago.

He says an incident on a farm can have a lasting impact, not just on the victim but also friends and family.
