Health & Safety at Longlands

Health and Safety is crucial so we take it extremely seriously - and we also use it as a learning opportunity:

  • All tasks are fully risk assessed, and the risks are minimised.

  • All students complete a City & Guilds qualification in health and safety early on in their time with us

  • We have public liability and employers insurance with the NFU.

Copies of risks assessments and insurance are available to view .

Most students learn to drive the ‘Buggy’ – the farm’s All Terrain Vehicle. 

 

Some also learn to drive a tractor, exhibiting a remarkable level of skill.

SAFEGUARDING

All of our team have undertaken safeguarding training to a minimum of level 1 as well as Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence training, and the 'Respect 100 programme’

 

We have robust safeguarding policies in place and a lead safeguarding officer is on site at all times.
 

FIRST AID TRAINING

All of our team have undertaken the Emergency First Aid at Work Course with two team members holding a First Aid at Work certificate.

When working around the farm and estate, work groups can sometimes be in remote areas so we ensure each working group always carries a first aid kit, means of communication (two-way radio and or mobile phone) and a fire extinguisher.

FOOD SAFETY

Any team members who are involved in food preparation onsite have current level 2 food safety certificates.
