Dairy Farming

The hazards in the cow shed are many - slips, kicks, plant operation, and chemical use.

Outside the cow shed there are even more hazards, from machinery, tractors, bikes and equipment use to effluent ponds. Do you have the appropriate controls and signage in place?

With international workers, a growing hazard is a misunderstanding of the information provided. It is important to make sure they have a full understanding of the instructions and safety on the farm. Language barriers can sometimes cause misunderstanding of requirements.

Regular team meetings to discuss hazards and controls, training of staff and wellbeing checks are vital in this industry.

We can help you put a plan in place that ensures Dairy Farming is safer for everyone.
