Can our latest checklist save your bacon?

The most common causes of serious and fatal injuries in agriculture involve farm vehicles and machinery. To comply with legislation, you should carry out daily checks to make sure the machinery you are about to use, or allow someone else to use, is safe and working correctly.

Keeping a record of when checks have been carried out and what work has been done is also important. These records can help show that a machine is well maintained and regularly checked, proving invaluable in the event of an HSE inspection following an accident. The checks may also help reduce the risk of an accident occurring in the first place, as possible defects may be highlighted and repairs carried out before they deteriorate further. Regular maintenance can also extend the lifespan of the machine and help prevent deterioration of parts, which could lead to expensive repair bills. Click here for more information
