Unit 3 – Health and safety on the farm

In this unit I will learn how to:

  1. identify hazards and risks for visitor safety on a farm
  2. to introduce risk control measures that are sufficient to safeguard visitors, but do not lessen the attraction.
  3. set out rules of conduct for children and other visitors

Introduction into the topic:

Farmers and teachers want their visitors to return home safe, happy and satisfied with their experiences. It is important to protect them from unnecessary or unreasonable risks. This chapter gives you instruments to identify hazards and risks and introduces a framework for planning your approach to visitor safety, ensuring that it integrates with other management activities.
