Case studies - controlling exposure to poultry dust

HSE publication 'Controlling exposure to poultry dust' gives simple practical advice on how to protect workers’ health on a range of common activities or tasks associated with working with poultry.

Examples of good working practice for poultry farmers

The case studies below have been produced to illustrate the examples of good working practices contained within the guidance. They have been produced in partnership with members of the joint HSE/Industry Working Group (who also produced the above guidance).
