Employers and self employed farmers have a duty of care to the employees and contractors that work for them. Staff should feel confident and comfortable coming to work knowing they are not at risk of serious injury or death. To give staff this confidence, farmers must properly induct new staff, and consult with these staff over the duration of their employment, to ensure they know and understand all of the procedures on your farm. Inductions should be detailed and thoughtful and provide the opportunity for staff to ask any questions they might have.
