It is vital for professional contractors to have safety as a top priority to protect themselves, their employees and customers. It is a legal and moral duty to look after the health and safety of everyone involved in your business, and if you have 5 or more employees, the policy must be written down. NAAC members have free access to an online Safety Management Manual, saving them thousands of pounds and many hours spent in the office.
Farmers and contractors need to work together to ensure that safety management is a priority while contractors are on farm. Both parties will have duties under health and safety law, and open communication is essential to ensure that everyone is fully aware of their responsibilities to protect staff and the public.
This checklist, put together by the NAAC and NFU, lists what farmers need to look for when selecting a contractor to work with, what farmers must provide the contractors with, and what both parties must agree on before work starts.
