Accidents on farms
People sometimes have the wrong impression about working on farms. They mistakenly believe that being a farmer or farm labourer must be a healthy occupation. However farm workers understand how wrong this impression is.
There are occupational diseases which are associated with farming, such as “Farmer’s Lung” which is the result of spending years in a dusty atmosphere in a barn where grains and hay are stored. Without the appropriate protective gear, you can become seriously ill.
If you work on a farm you could also develop Vibration White Finger (VWF) after years of using high-powered drills without wearing appropriate protective gloves. This is a recognized work-related illness.
Accidents are common on farms, and injuries range from the minor to fatal ones. There is the heavy equipment to handle, there could be collisions involving farm vehicles and threshing machines could amputate a limb. Farmers and workers have died after falling off or through a roof.
Livestock can be dangerous too, and as members of the public can walk through farmland which is a public right of way, there is the risk of being attacked by a herd of cows, for example.
Members of the public also go to farms to pick their own fruit in summer and autumn, and some farms also double-up as riding schools. Unfortunately young children have also been injured, and some have died because of accident at farms.
