This assessment examines the hazards, risks and control measures relating to Fire and Rescue Service personnel, the personnel of other agencies and members of the public when fighting fires in farms. This assessment considers the full range from smallholdings to large farms that undertake a wide variety of activities.

Significant hazards which face Fire and Rescue Service personnel at farm fires are covered in chapters within this GRA:
  • Access
  • The nature, construction and condition of farm buildings and farms
  • Hazardous substances and materials stored or used on the farm
  • Electrical power supplies
  • Machinery, workshops, silos, barns and stores
  • Water pits, slurry pits and lagoons
  • Work at height
  • Animals and insects
  • Biological hazards including animal waste (solid, liquid) and bio-aerosols
  • Stacked materials
  • Non-Fire and Rescue Service personnel.

Depending on the nature and scale of the operational incident a variety of significant hazards may be present. Therefore contents of other specific Generic Risk Assessments may also need to be considered.

As with all GRAs, this assessment provides a starting point for each FRS to conduct their own assessments and produce their own Safe Systems of Work within the context of local conditions and existing organisational arrangements.

This GRA is supplied as an A4, loose-leaf publication. A binder pack containing an introduction to the series, foreword by Sir Ken Knight, contents, and dividers is available to order separately. The binder is the ideal solution for storing these loose-leaf GRAs.
