They are exposed to the effects of bad weather, noise and dust. The risks also include family members working at the farm and children living at or visiting the farm.

The following pages provide guidance on a range of key topics and forms the basis of health and safety advice for agriculture. Each topic page provides information and advice as well as references to some of the other most relevant HSE publications.
