Examining safety while handling livestock

Agriculture is a high-risk industry, accounting for 1 in 5 of all industry fatalities occurring annually in the United Kingdom. The main hazards associated with farming include handling livestock, particularly cattle.

The aim of this project is to examine farmer views and opinions of risks associated with livestock handling in various hazardous scenarios, as well as of the skills used to manage such risks.

Data is collected anonymously, so you will not have to provide your name or location at any point during the questionnaire. The data is only analysed on a group basis by the researcher, in order to complete the present postgraduate project and to potentially publish the article at a later date in an academic publication.
