How to stack small square hay bales to avoid an accident claim in Laxey
Stacks of the small square hay bales ought to have interlocking patterns. The workers that are stacking the bales ought to offset each of the layers and interlock it in a way that’s different to the hay bale below. This is going to help with keeping the bales from toppling over and causing an accident. When hay bales fall over, they can cause serious injury to people or to livestock. So it’s best to keep them safely stacked so that everyone on the farm is staying safe.
How to stack big square hay bales to avoid an accident claim in Laxey
Stacks of the big square hay bales ought to begin using a base that is wide. When the stack is getting higher, it should narrow off more. This kind of stack should have a maximum height that is just one point five times the width of the base. They also shouldn’t exceed eight bales high in the fields and 10 bales high when it’s on a hard kind of surface such as concrete.

How to stack round Bales to avoid an accident claim in Laxey
When stacking up round bales, it’s a good idea to put the bales on their sides before creating a pyramid. Each of the new layer should overlap the layer below by half a bale’s length. The bales on the bottom should also have chocks or stakes to help them keep from moving. Keep in mind that anything round is bound to roll, so you want to make sure that you are keeping the round bales so that they aren’t moving. It’s also a good idea to keep them on a flat surface rather than on a hill.
