    Compensation for serious injuries on a farm

    What is the first thing you think of when you think about a farm? Naturally, you’ll probably think of the countryside, fields of cows and other animals, and a peaceful and relaxing setting. The last thing you would think of would be the potential that can exist in these settings for accidents and injuries to occur.

    It’s good to know that the vast majority of farms are run safely and according to Health and Safety rules and regulations that are in place. However there is the potential for serious injuries on a farm to occur from time to time. This can be because of a variety of incidents that could potentially take place. Farms have many potential hazards and they may lead to accidents occurring if they are not properly acknowledged and monitored.

    For example, the animals themselves can sometimes have the potential to be dangerous. If you know anything about farm work you will know a variety of different machines are used to perform certain tasks as well, and these can pose a danger if they are not used correctly. As you can see, it makes sense to ensure the dangers are kept to a minimum.

    What types of accidents could potentially take place?

    There are all kinds of things that could happen if the hazards are not seen, noted and dealt with in a way that can reduce the odds of potential accidents taking place. For example, if someone is working at a height there should be safety measures to help prevent a fall. If someone is working in a silo they should have breathing equipment on to ensure any dangerous build-up of gases cannot affect them. Other measures could also be taken in a variety of other situations.
