PREVENTIVE MEASURES

    • Construct buildings and develop working methods that will separate the worker from the animal, especially when moving animals
    • Use appropriate personal protective equipment (incl. clothing).
    • Use slip-resistant footwear. Keep passages clean.
    • Ventilate properly. Do not work alone.
