Hazards on a Farm

A working farm is filled with many potential hazards and even the most experienced farmer or farm worker could fall victim to an accident when carrying out their day-to-day duties. Due to the nature of the work and the range of machinery and equipment present, there are a variety of accidents that can occur on a farm. The most common accident scenarios we have encountered include:

  • Farm vehicle accidents
  • Machinery accidents
  • Livestock accidents
  • Falls from height
  • Injuries caused by chemicals and hazardous materials
  • Illness from prolonged work on a farm, for example, farmer’s lung
  • Accidents in a slurry store, pit or silo
  • Injuries caused by falling objects
  • Repeated exposure to excessive noise levels
  • Frequently using vibrating power tools

A Farmer’s Responsibility

Like any employers, farmers have a legal responsibility to keep their staff safe from harm. This includes putting measures in place to reduce the chances of an accident happening. Steps that can be taken include:

  • Providing suitable health and safety training.
  • Ensuring warning signs are on display in hazardous areas.
  • Ensuring the right person (and the right number of people) is assigned to each task.
  • Maintaining farm vehicles and machinery.
  • Providing suitable personal protective equipment.

If you have had an accident on a farm that was caused by the negligence of the farmer, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
