4 “Must Have” Measures for a Safe Work Environment | MilkingCloud

How safe is your farm? Have you taken adequate safety measures for your workers and animals? What needs to be done to create a safe working environment in your farm?

1- Transfer of Animals Inside the Farm

It is very important in terms of safety that your cattles are transferred properly from one barn to another or from the barn to the milking parlor. One-third of all accidents in dairy farms happens during the transfer of animals and many of which are overlooked by the employees. However, this is very important for the health of both the employees and the animals.

Necessary training should be given to employees on how to move an animal or an entire herd. In some transfers, the herd that you are dealing with may be overcrowded. Unwanted problems may be encountered in these crowded transfer operations.

In addition, the accident rate can be minimized by arranging your business in accordance with the transfer of your animals. Such accidents can be prevented by a route system which ensures cattles are transfered properly and safely.

2- Providing the Necessary Trainings

Training is the most important factor for a safe work environment on farms. Employees who do not have previous work experience on a farm, need to be trained properly before starting to work.

Employees should be informed about how to keep themselves and the cattles safe. Necessary training should be given not only at the beginning of the job, but also on the weak sides that workers are unable to improve themselves. In this way, the employees get the necessary information about the work environment. They can also take the necessary precautions for themselves and the animals beforehand.

3- Keep in Touch with Your Employees

The most important keyword for a safe working environment in dairy farms: Communication. For any precaution you take, always inform your employees. It is important that you regularly take feedback and pay attention to the expectations of your employees.

Always communicate with your employees about the safety of the work environment by arranging weekly or monthly meetings. In this way, your employees can have a better understanding of the importance of having a safe work environment.

4- Be Prepared, Arranged and Organized
