Working in agriculture and horticulture can be dangerous…

Whether you’re dealing with animals or heavy machinery, the agriculture and horticulture industry can be risky. In fact, the industry accounts for around 19% of fatal injuries each year.

With over 12,000 workers suffering from non-fatal injuries every year, there’s lots of rules and regulations you need to maintain. Along with meeting HSE requirements, you also need to follow guidelines set out by bodies like the Rural Payments Agency Environment Agency Animal.

And as an employer, it’s up to you to make sure these rules are met. You’ll need to make sure your farm and equipment is fully compliant and safe to use – and if you don’t, you could face a legal claim.

If you’d like to keep your people safe in confidence, 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.
