Nestled in the midst of Portsmouth and Southampton, Fareham is a small town that is based in Hampshire. Throughout its life cycle the region has served a great number of purposes, one of which includes being a large scale manufacturer of bricks, which were notably used in order to build the well known Royal Albert Hall. It is also well known for being a location that has roots in agriculture, and there are a number of farmers in the region who grow crops such as strawberries.
Agriculture – an industry in Fareham
Growing strawberries is not something limited to large farms. In fact if you have a good plot of land, and some form of knowledge when it comes to gardening, you’ll be able to grow strawberries both for pleasure and for consumption.
Whilst growing strawberries, or anything else for that matter, you must take into consideration the risks that might come into play whilst gardening. Though maybe not the case with growing strawberries, gardening can involve the use of many dangerous tools, and pieces of gardening equipment. Many of these gardening utensils tend to be quite sharp, and if they are involved in some kind of accident, they can cause a lot of damage. Open wounds, that result in a lot of bleeding are not uncommon in accidents that involve these tools.
Preventing these kinds of accidents therefore is key, and steps and precautions should always be put into action, to keep you and your fellow gardeners safe. In an agricultural setting it is the employer that is responsible for keeping workers safe.
The injuries can result in nasty cuts and lacerations. If the wound is an open, bleeding wound, get some pressure on it as fast as possible, and make sure you’re doing all that you can to stop the bleeding. If someone else is nearby, get them to call the emergency services, or take you to the nearest accident and emergency department.
