Whether you’re dealing with animals or heavy machinery, the agriculture and horticulture industry can be risky. In fact, agricultural and horticultural workers are 5x more likely to be injured in an occupational accident than workers in any other industry.
With over 1500 workers seriously injured in farm-related accidents every year, there are a lot of rules and regulations you need to follow to stay compliant and keep your staff safe.
And as an employer, it’s up to you to make sure all these rules are met. You’ll need to make sure your farm and equipment are fully compliant and safe to use – and if you don’t, you could face a legal claim.
If you’d like to keep your workers safe, Peninsula is here to help. We’ll take care of your health & safety policies, carry out your risk assessments, and offer 24/7 advice – whenever you need support.
