First Aid Training Courses For Farms
At FirstAid4Farms, we offer training that is targeted, specific and relevant to anyone who runs or works on a Farm in any capacity.
Farming is a hazardous industry.
Farmers and farm workers work with potentially dangerous machinery, vehicles, chemicals, livestock, at height or near pits and silos.
They are exposed to the effects of bad weather, noise and dust.
The total annual cost of injuries (in farming, forestry and horticulture) to society is estimated at £190 million and around two-thirds of that is due to reportable injuries (£130 million), with fatalities accounting for around another third (£55 million).
The most common causes of non-fatal injuries are:
- handling, lifting or carrying;
- slip, trip or fall on the same level;
- being struck by moving, including flying or falling, objects;
- falls from height;
- contact with machinery;
- being injured by an animal.
Health and safety is a fundamental requirement of a sustainable farming business and should be regarded as an essential part of farm business management.
