This edition looks at the new requirement of the Red Tractor Certified Standards to show a health and safety policy as part of the farm assessment. Following Storms Arwen and Barra, we highlight that emergency tree work is dangerous and should only be undertaken by experienced professionals. Farm and estate staff require competency and certification in various areas – winter is a good time to review training records and requirements for your team. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) have issued a safety notice regarding the use of wheeled loading shovels – we consider the agricultural implications of these machines. Our update also looks at the increased risk of fertiliser theft and steps for safe and secure storage. Finally, we examine two recent prosecutions and the lessons learnt for rural businesses.
