  • Ensure that hands are washed after touching fences, tools or any surfaces which may have come in contact with animals, manure or soil  and touching or feeding animals
  • Do not eat or chew outside of eating areas on the farm
  • Make sure that any cuts or grazes on hands are covered with a waterproof dressing
  • Ensure that sturdy foot wear is worn, that can be cleaned (shallow footbaths are situated outside of the stables) or changed on leaving the animal areas
  • Do not kiss the animals
  • Do not eat the animal food
  • Do not put your fingers in your mouth i.e. biting finger nails, sucking thumbs
  • Do not touch or tread in animal faeces, wash shoes and hands if you have come into contact with faeces
