A DVD has been produced by BPEX to help pig producers identify ventilation-related problems and, more importantly, provide practical solutions. It is presented by John Chambers of J C Consulting, who has been trouble-shooting problems caused by poor ventilation for many years.
If you have received a copy of the ventilation DVD we welcome your feedback. The following feedback form will only take a couple of minutes to complete and can remain anonymous if you wish.
Health and Safety for Pig Farmers
Agriculture remains a high risk industry with regards to the number of serious injuries and deaths each year, especially in relation to the number of people employed.
Farmers are responsible for the Health, Safety and Welfare of not only those directly employed, but also all contractors, visitors and any third parties who may come into contact with the farming activity.
The modern approach to health and safety is through risk assessment and risk management. There are a number of regulations with which farmers must comply.
Health and Safety for Pig Farmers is a BPEX publication which has been created with help from the Health and Safety Executive to give advise to producers on issues relating specifically to their industry.
