Safety on your mushroom farm or compost yard should always be of high priority. Yes when an accident happens people are very aware of the safety. But safety is therefor to avoid accidents.
When engineering our machinery we take very high notice of our safety standards. Also we have regulations which we have to follow. But in the end you want to have machinery with a high safety standard and still easy to work with. So just following regulations is not enough in our point of view. Furthermore listen to your customer and their practical experiences. This all helps in creating a safer environment for your staff.
We noticed an online article from WorkSafeBC. This organisation is from province BC in Canada. They have a seperate article dedicated to convined spaces in mushroom farms and compost yards. This can be interesting to read for you as grower.
