Agricultural students at Abingdon and Witney College will be learning about farm safety today.
It's part of an initiative by the National Farmers Union to try and raise awareness of the risks involved with the industry and reduce the number of injuries and fatalities every year.
They'll be put in real-life situations and have to decide what action to take to prevent accidents happening.
"Young people are such an important target group for this farm safety message as the future of the industry.
"As technology advances within farming, the risk of accidents can actually increase. While the safety of machinery and equipment has improved, the fact that machines can do so much more can make people complacent. It's fantastic to have an outside organisation like the Farm Safety Foundation come in to help us deliver this vital message and for the students to face scenarios they could come across on their own farms when they go home or in their future workplace."
