The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSWA) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 place duties on companies and individuals to make sure that adequate provision is made for health and safety at work. Employers must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of employees and any others who may be affected by what they do.
As farmers and growers, you use management systems to make sure that crops and animals are kept healthy and productive, and to enable you to stay in business. You plan what to plant and when, assess the risks of diseases and other incidents that may spoil the crop or animal. You control any problems, monitor growth, decide when to harvest, and store products in a way that ensures they stay fresh. You also work out how
successful you have been and come up with improvements. Managing health and safety is no different – you need to manage it to make sure that you, your workers, family members and others are kept safe at work.
