Members warned of dangers during harvest season

Following the tragic death of a farm worker in Aberdeenshire earlier this week, Scottish Land & Estates is reminding members to remain vigilant to the dangers of operating farm machinery as the harvest season gets well underway. Risks from overhead cables, carrying out maintenance and clearing blockages and operating machinery when tired can all lead to disastrous consequence for farm workers. The Health and Safety Executive has an information sheet on the safe use of combine harvesters which Scottish Land & Estates recommends is issued to all employees and contractors undertaking harvesting operations, along with a note of the height of any overhead power lines. Warning stickers can be requested from Scottish Land & Estates’ HQ.
