NFU Mutual SafetyHub for Small Farms
According to figures collated by NFU Mutual, smaller farming businesses, whose workers invariably carry out a wide variety of tasks, often in poor weather conditions, are still prone to significant personal injury claims as a result of accidents involving workers. They are less likely, however, to have in place health and safety documentation, and this exposes them to the risk of civil or criminal litigation.
NFU Mutual has launched an online tool, which is tablet and mobile enabled, to help small farms actively manage workplace risks and remain health and safety compliant.
The new service costs £150 plus VAT in year one and allows those signing up to complete modules that generate risk management plans specific to their farms that address all likely hazards to staff and to members of the public.
