It’s something that we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with, not only here in Barry, but with accidents and injuries that occur anywhere across the UK. Of course, the blame for the accident must be attributable to a third party.
Farm Safety and Health Awareness Days (SHADs)
The farming industry, (like any other streams that uses mostly self-employed workers), is one of the worst in terms of regulation. RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) protocols and reporting, often go by the board, which is why the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) lays on a number of so-called farm SHADs (Safety and Health Awareness Days).
SHADs include practical demonstrations as well as theoretical lectures and last half a day. They cover all sorts of hazards that farmers face, plus any risks to their families and any workers that they employ. They are a great opportunity for farmers to get first hand personal advice. Attendance is completely voluntary and is free of charge.
The SHADs that the HSE organise have been attended by thousands of farmers over the years, from England, Scotland and Wales. They are the perfect vehicle for imparting important health and safety information and doctrines to both self-employed farmers with families, and farmers who employ up to 4 people. According to surveys carried out, 99% of attendees would recommend SHADs to their peers. You can find out more about the views of farmers who had attending SHADs by visiting the HSE website and taking a look at video entitled “farmers views video.”
