Health & Safety

Don’t Let it Happen on your Farm

Farming is a dangerous job. It’s also busy, so dealing with health & safety can feel overwhelming. Even if you have less than 5 employees (paid or not; part time, full time, occasional or holiday cover) you have a legal obligation to keep them safe.

Should the worst happen, you will have to prove that you have followed legislation and guidance dictated by the HSE and that you have given suitable instruction, information and training to all workers.

“As an industry, we have to improve our compliance; for too long we’ve been incompetent in health and safety.”

Phil, Cheltenham

Our Health & Safety service is tailored to your farm and we work with you, whether adopting a formal plan for the first time or revising & updating an existing policy.

A comprehensive Health & Safety Farm File is produced for use on farm as a reference point for H&S guidance, staff training, HSE inspections and peace of mind for you.

It includes the following;

  • Bespoke Farm Risk Assessments
  • Farm Yard Inspection
  • Farm Health & Safety Action Plan
  • Farm Health & Safety Policy
  • Colour Coded Farm Maps and Site Plans
  • Farm COSHH Assessment
  • Staff Induction Records & Training Matrix
  • On-Farm Training for Staff
  • Facilitate Accredited Staff Training
  • Develop Farm Policies
  • Develop Permit to Work Procedure for High Risk Activities


How Does it work?

We don’t believe that farm health & safety can be ‘fixed’ in one visit. We don’t think that the same generic H&S file churned out time and time again protects you.

So, our Health and Safety Premium service includes;

  • 4 x farm visits per year
  • A farm specific, tailored H&S Farm File
  • An Action Plan which we help you complete
  • Training for you and your staff
  • Develop Safe Systems of Work and Permits to Work
  • Year round support
