It is very hard to generalise and look at the farming industry as a whole in terms of possible risk factors as different types of farming brings its own dangers. As with any industry it is not merely the equipment and machinery (and in this case the livestock) that in itself can be dangerous but a number of other factors come into play. Farm owners and managers have seen their profit margins squeezed to breaking point over recent years as retailers seek to negotiate the best possible prices so that they can undercut their competitions in the battle to win more customers, and as a result difficult decisions have to be made. Farm equipment and machinery may be replaced and serviced less often and cheaper, less experienced farm workers may have been employed all in the hope to try and balance the books and keep farms afloat.
Inevitably when such situations arise accidents tend to increase. We are not saying that all farms are putting their employees at risk in an effort to save money, but in certain cases this does appear to be the case.
Even those farms that are fortunate enough to be thriving in financial terms are still dangerous working environments if health and safety laws and guidelines are not followed.
If you or someone you know has been injured whilst working or visiting a farm contact Mercury Legal Online today to see if we can help you make a compensation claim.
