Health and safety    
All of our activities at Field Farm Project are designed
to give you safe access to the farm and surrounding landscape.

  • Visiting staff or group leaders should familiarise themselves with the Site Specific Emergency Procedures and ensure that all staff are appropriately prepared.
  • Generic Risk Assessments are produced and updated by Field Farm Project staff.
  • Schools and group leaders need to consider any specific risks associated with bringing their group to the farm and planned activities e.g. medical, behaviour, travel etc.
  • Please present the leading staff for your trip an updated register of the children/group present on the day. Visiting staff should have access to medical and emergency contact details of all attending.
  • We require a ratio of at least one responsible adult per six pupils with primary aged children or one adult per ten students for the older age groups.
  • Children need to be closely supervised when in direct contact with animals and should not let the animals suck their fingers.
  • All visitors should wash hands immediately after any activity, particularly contact with animals.
  • Younger children must be carefully supervised to ensure their hand washing is thorough (using soap and warm water).
  • Children should be discouraged from putting their hands on their face or fingers in their mouths.
  • Ensure that any visitor with a cut or abrasion keeps it covered, e.g. with a plaster, for the duration of the visit.
  First Aid:
  • First aid boxes are sited in the kitchen and in the main barn and are clearly marked.
  • Field Farm Project staff carry first aid kits when leading groups.
  • Group leading staff are all qualified first aiders (HSE first aid at work - appointed persons)
Accident / near miss:
  • Any accident, however minor, should be reported to Field Farm Project staff who will administer first aid if necessary and ensure that the incident is reported.
  • A written report is required for any accident or near miss.
Fire Safety:
  • The fire assembly point is in the main
    car park outside the barn.
  • Elsewhere on site follow the instructions
    of the staff.
  • Emergency services can be summoned
    using any of the staff phones.
