Самостоятелно заети сезонни работници26 Apr 2023 | Elida Dimitrova
Самостоятелно заети лица с най-висок риск при инциденти в селското стопанство Селското стопанство представлява опасна индустрия във Великобритания и според доклада на Изпълнителния орган за здраве и безопасност 2020/2021, смъртните случаи във фермите са нараснали с почти 80% през 2021 г., превръщайки селското стопанство в сектора с най -висок процент на смъртоносни наранявания на работниците от всички основни индустриални сектори. 41 души са загинали при инциденти във ферми през последните 12 месеца, което се равнява на почти един човек всяка седмица, убит по време на работа в селското стопанство на Обединеното кралство. В повечето случаи отговорните за наемането на работници като самостоятелно заети лица пренебрегват всички необходими предпазни мерки за здраве и безопасност на труда и излагат работниците си на сериозни наранявания и заболявания. Що се отнася до статистиката през 2020/2021 г. е регистриран най-големият брой смъртни случаи за последните 5 години на самонаети работници. Това изобщо не е изненадващо, тъй като в повечето ситуации тези самостоятелно заети лица не се ползват с много от трудовите права, предоставени на постоянните работници. Често ние представляваме такива клиенти и в повечето случаи подкрепяме тезата че нашите клиенти, трябва да се считат за служители, независимо от това дали са регистрирани като самостоятелно заети лица с данъчни и национални осигурителни цели, ако техните работни условия са същите като на тези лица, които работят с трудов договор (те работят по договорен начин, само за този бизнес, са под контрола на фермера/работодателя и използват инструменти и материали, предоставени от фермера/работодателя). Всяка година тази статистика отразява необходимостта от напомняне на фермерите и работодателите да се стремят да поддържат добри стандарти за здраве и безопасност, тъй като това представлява основно изискване за устойчив селскостопански бизнес. Оценките на риска трябва внимателно да анализира какво потенциално може да доведе до предпоставки за инцидент, така че да могат да се вземат решения дали са взети достатъчно предпазни мерки или трябва да се предприемат повече за защита на хората, доколкото това е „разумно възможно“. Много е важно те да вземат предвид всяка потенциална опасност и да са наясно с това кой може да пострада, това могат да бъдат служителите, случайните работници, обществеността, изпълнителите и дори собственото им семейство. Обучението за използване на защитни мерки, като предпазители на машини, ЛПС и безопасни методи на работа, е жизненоважно, но през повечето време се пренебрегва от работодателя. Да пострада при инцидент на работа може да бъде пагубно за пострадалия работник и за тези, които се грижат за някой със сериозна травма.
