Identifying common hazards

Farms can be dangerous places with many different hazards that can escape your notice. Reduce the risk of injuries on your farm.

The first step in preventing injuries is to become aware of the potential hazards. Common hazards on farms include*:

  • Chemical hazards, like pesticides, solvents and fumes from manure tanks
  • Biological hazards, like bacteria, viruses, dust and mould
  • Physical hazards, like electricity, heat, light, noise and radiation
  • Confined spaces and heights
  • Heavy machinery
  • Animals becoming dangerous
  • Heavy work involving lifting and moving heavy loads
  • Workplace stress like shift work, harassment, heavy workload
  • Working alone, in isolated areas or in extreme weather.

Once you’ve identified the potential hazards in your daily and seasonal farm practices, assess the likelihood and severity of injury for each hazard. Then make changes, with a special focusing on hazards that have a high likelihood of happening or a high severity if they happen.
