Quendale is located on the South Mainland of the Shetland Islands in Scotland. It has a rich history, with a water mill that is open to the public and a pristine beach. There are excavations taking place on the Quendale Links, as scientists try to discover more about sand inundations and the destruction they caused in the past.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have reported that in the ten years up to the end of 2013, an average of one person every week was killed in the agricultural sector. Many others have been seriously injured or made ill because of working in agriculture. Far from being a healthy occupation, farmers and their employees are often working in unhealthy, dangerous environments. Farmer’s lung is an occupational disease which can be contracted because of working in a granary, when there is a lot of dust from stored grain in the air.
The HSE point out that in the agricultural sector:
- About 12,000 people suffered from an illness which was caused or made worse by their current or most recent job;
- Musculoskeletal injuries (back pain, sprains or strains) were over three times the rate for all industries;
- The number of people affected by asthma is twice the national average; and
- About 20,000 people are affected by zoonosis (diseases passed from animals to humans) each year.
