Sharing our knowledge at a recent farm safety event in Cheshire

We love getting out and about and meeting our customers Which meant we were thrilled to attend the recent National Farmers Union (NFU) hosted farm event in Cheshire!

Our very own Melissa Boyes, Geoff Butters, and Emma Rimmer spent the evening meeting with our NFU reps, NFU Mutual Agents and farmers to talk more about the importance of keeping on top of statutory inspections, and how Vulcan Inspection Services can help to keep machinery and equipment safe and operational with a thorough schedule of inspections.

Melissa and Geoff also spoke to the attendees about the regulations that directly impact farmers and the wider agricultural industry,  a topic which many can find confusing.

After tucking into the BBQ, kindly put on by the NFU, our team took to the floor (which just so happened to be in a working machinery storage barn), to chat through the relevant legislation in more detail.

Melissa shared a bit of background about Vulcan Inspection Services, its history, and how we have worked directly with NFU Mutual customers for over 25 years to keep them compliant with a suite of the very best inspections.

Geoff shared his expertise with the attendees by speaking about the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, (LOLER) a regulation that farmers often aren’t aware affects them, when in fact it does He explained that anything from lifting equipment, overhead cranes and goods and passenger lifts to telehandlers, forklifts, and lifting accessories fall under LOLER, and what this regulation means for customers.

The questions came in thick and fast, and Melissa and Geoff were more than happy to share their expert knowledge on everything farmers need to ensure their machinery is compliant and safe.
