A booklet that helps identifying the causes of injuries and ill health. It will also help eliminating hazards and controlling risks. The booklet is divided into three parts: the first part covers managing health and safety and is primarily aimed at those responsible for running the farming or horticultural business (partners, directors and sole traders). The second part covers specific safety risks on farms and gives practical advises to reduce and control the risk. The third part covers longer lasting risks due to chemical or biological agents, physical work, noise and vibration, and personal protection. Finally Agriculture news is presented: eBulletins and RSS newsfeed on agriculture.
The material is relevant to everyone working on farms, whether employer, employee or self-employed.
The material can be downloaded free of charge, printed and displayed. No on-line interaction is necessary.
