Personal injury solicitor in Faversham, preventing E.coli O157 infections
Your personal injury solicitor in Faversham will be very aware that the owner/manager of the animal visitor centre has a duty of care to ensure that you and your family are kept reasonably safe during your visit. This may include adhering to Codes of Practice and guidelines for this sort of premises which are readily available and which clearly set out the steps that should be taken in order to keep all visitors safe. Here are a few examples.
Some major decisions have to be taken a long time before any members of the public are allowed onto the premises. One of these decisions involves identifying which areas visitors will be allowed to have access to. Once this has been completed a route around the premises must be devised so that visitors can get around without having to enter non-access areas such as places where work is going on or where animal manure is stored. Then it is necessary to consider how to prevent entry to non-access areas. This can be achieved with suitable fencing and warning signs. Signs are also needed to direct visitors to washing facilities as they leave any animal contact area. The route could ensure that they have to walk past washing facilities as they leave animal contact areas and before they enter eating and play areas and before they approach the exit of the premises.
There can be a certain degree of separation between visitors and animal manure. This could be achieved by making sure that visitor’s routes do not cross the routes regularly used by stock and farm vehicles. It is always best to avoid visitors walking through any build-up of manure.
