Identifying Hazards

There are a number of ways to identify the hazards on your farm. All employers are responsible for identifying the hazards that exist at their workplace/farm. For larger farms with over 20 employees there is a requirement to develop a hazard identification program. A hazard identification program is simply the outline of the process and schedule to be followed on your farm.


Find a template for a hazard identification program within your workbook.

While a formalized hazard identification program may not be required for smaller farms, it is absolutely critical to know and identify any potential safety issue on your farm in order to keep everyone safe. There are a number of methods by which you can identify hazards on your farm. You should pick the options that work best for you.
