This is a Welsh version of Farmwise: Your essential guide to health and safety in agriculture

In the last 10 years almost one person a week has been killed as a direct result of agricultural work. Many more have been seriously injured or made ill by their work.

The guidance in this book is relevant to everyone working on farms, whether employer, employee or self-employed, and will help you identify the causes of injuries and ill health, eliminate hazards and control risks.

The first part covers managing health and safety and is primarily aimed at those responsible for running the farming or horticultural business (partners, directors and sole traders) but will also be of interest to others.

The second and third parts cover specific risks in your industry and gives you easy-to-follow, practical advice to keep you safe and healthy at work.

You can purchase a copy of Farmwise from HSE Books, or attend an Agriculture Safety and Health Awareness Day to get a copy for free.
