“Dairy farms are one of the most diverse working environments and workplace hazards are not always animal related,” says Tadhg O’Leary, AgSafe Agricultural Safety Advisor. “It’s a farmer’s responsibility to eliminate those hazards by developing a comprehensive workplace safety plan. This guide was developed using feedback from our dairy farm members about the safety challenges they face.
