Unfortunately, a large number of dangerous incidents occur in the countryside each year. When doing farm work, every person should take extra care.
In theory, the larger the farm, the greater the risk of an accident. This is due to, among other things, a large number of agricultural machines, equipment, pens, farm rooms and potentially dangerous animals. Every farm owner or manager should continually perform or contract for preventive work to reduce the risk of dangerous situations.
One of the most dangerous activities performed in agriculture is the operation of machinery. This is often due to vehicles that are well past their prime. On many farms, farmers work with modern tractors and harvesters, but a large number of farmers still use old equipment. Why is it dangerous to work with machines and vehicles?
Every owner or manager of a farm should fill in the survey available at this link http://www.bhpwrolnictwie.pl/pdf/lkdzn.pdf. You will find many interesting questions, especially about children.
One of the key issues on any farm, even a small farm, is fire prevention. Farm rooms are often constructed of varnished wood. If you add to this a large amount of dry hay, you get an extremely flammable combination.
Many farms use crop protection products to increase crop yields, among other things. It is necessary to store them in a closed room where children and animals do not have access. It is not uncommon for these substances to be dangerous in high concentrations.
Chemicals are dangerous to both skin and eyes. They also often give off choking fumes. If swallowed, they can cause far-reaching health consequences.
Anyone who is permanently or periodically on a farm should be able to administer first aid. This also applies to children. First of all, everyone must know the emergency number 112 and learn how to briefly and honestly present a dangerous event. Such conversations can be carried out several times on a trial basis, so that everyone will know what to ask the employee of the dispatch center.
