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:

H&H do the job!
We are not so good at responding to first emails - even though all information is always provided in a clear way, with timelines. We appreciate H&H for following up with us. Because of their work, we have not missed an important deadline yet. We have used H&H for years - because they are good at what they do. We need yo thank them!!

If H and H continue provide competitive Farm Insurance, giving the required cover but at a lot lower price than other providers, I can certainly recommend them. I found out about H and H because another farmer recommended them to me.
