In a rural community, many people are employed in the agricultural sector, and this has one of the worst records for health and safety when compared with other sectors. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics show that there are, on average 49 deaths in agricultural accidents every year. Farm vehicles might overturn or collide with others, and you could have your foot crushed by one.
There are also accidents involving farm machinery and you risk having a limb cut off by some of the blades in such equipment. People also fall from roofs, trees and buildings on farms and a risk assessment should be carried out and training should be received before anyone is asked to do anything that could lead to a fall from a height.
As on boats, there can also be injuries caused by falling objects, and these could include bales of hay, trees and buildings which collapse. Some farm buildings are old and contain asbestos which is classified as a hazardous material, and a danger to health. Pesticides are also harmful and anyone using them should be properly trained and given protective clothing before being asked to spray crops with them.
If grain and hay are stored on a farm there is a potential danger to health due to inhalation of dust, which can lead to occupational asthma. Then, of course, there is the livestock to consider; 8% of fatalities which occur on farms are due to livestock. Recently there were reports of people being killed by a herd of cows, and this type of incident is not as rare as you might have believed.
