H&H Safety, a health and safety support service for farm and rural businesses, has introduced H&H Safety Farm Zone at Borderway UK Dairy Expo 2020 at the Borderway Exhibition Centre, Carlisle in Cumbria on Saturday 14 March.

The H&H Safety Farm Zone will be specially branded within the pen area and will include a series of specialist presentations by industry experts on a variety of farm-related health and safety subjects.  Farmers visiting will have the opportunity to assess and improve their own on-farm safety through the timetable of key themes, which will include:

Luke Conn - Goodman @ H & H was nothing but helpful right from the word go, he was polite and tried to understand our business . H & H were recommended by a friend and they were a pleasing experience compared to other companies i had tried. I have already recommended H & H and yes i will hopefully use them again.
