Chemicals on Farms

Employers must protect everyone  who may be exposed to these by complying with Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations.

Failing to control hazardous substances adequately can cause employees or any person with contact to become ill – possibly not until a few years later.

Effects from hazardous substances could range from eye irritation to lung disease and sometimes can be life threatening  This may result in prosecution, or result in civil claims from employees

 

Handling Dangerous Chemicals on farms

See COSHH  

The most common hazardous chemicals used in farming are:

pesticides
ammonium nitrate
veterinary medicines
sheep dips

As per DEFRA
