A Farmer’s Responsibility Explained 

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 from happening. Steps that should 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
