At Sherratts Wood we take Health and Safety seriously and as such have recruited a director who is a Health and Safety consultant. With his help we are developing a bespoke care farming related approach to the management of risk.
As you can imagine, delivering farming activities with such a varied group of Day-farmers can be complicated, especially as people's needs may vary throughout the day depending upon a range of different factors.
As a result, we adopt a dynamic approach throughout the day to all farm tasks managing the risks associated with both the task and the specific needs of the Day-farmer undertaking it.

All Day-farmers receive appropriate training prior to commencing every activity and are fully supervised throughout.

All members of staff at Sherratts Wood are regularly CRB checked and Louise also has a NEBOSH general certificate in occupational safety & health. Sherratts Wood also carry £5m of public liability insurance.
As our farm has expanded we are in the process of developing our Health and Safety Policy and a policy statement will be available for you to view on this page very soon.
