Working on a Farm can be a dangerous job if all the stringent Health and Safety requirements and obligations are not followed carefully. A professional company like https://4rreassurance.co.uk/health-safety/ who specialise in Farm Health and Safety are working together with farms all over the country helping them with several aspects of this mandatory and life-saving side of farming. They can provide each individual farm with a bespoke Risk Assessment depending on how many farm workers there are and what type of machinery they are operating as well as a COSHH assessment. They make sure all staff are thoroughly trained on any machinery that is considered high-risk, help develop Farm policies, complete a thorough Farmyard inspection and produce an up to date Health and Safety action plan.
These precautions are not only potentially lifesaving but if the worst was to happen and an unfortunate accident did occur the farm would have to prove that all Health and Safety protocol had been strictly followed and the farm worker involved had received full and thorough training and had been provided with all the information necessary to prevent the accident.
The facts and figures don’t lie, agriculture has the highest fatality and injury rates and there were nearly 6 deaths per 100,000 last year, that’s eighteen times higher than all other industries! Don’t let your farm be part of these harrowing statistics, work together with one of the professionals who can support your farm and keep it Health and Safety compliant.
