Our colleagues in Lantra Awards have been busy developing a range of specialist e-learning courses for agriculture, including farm safety.

Developed in partnership with Dr Amy Irwin of Aberdeen University, “non-technical skills on farms” is being launched at the Highland Show for free as a taster.

By undertaking a straightforward, online course, risk can be minimised, and more importantly, farms can become a safer place to work.

To try the course, visit their website and select the non-technical skills on farms course, which will be available from Thursday 21 June.   

E-learning courses can be done in your own time, at your own pace, and on your own premises. After successful completion, you can save and print out a certificate of achievement immediately.

Other courses available include:  

•    Rodent Control on Farms
•    Responsible and Effective Control of Commensal Rodents
•    Health and Safety on Farms
•    Professional Wasp and Bee Control
•    Professional Bed Bug Control
•    Food Handling and Hygiene
•    Antibiotics in Cattle/Sheep/Pigs
