Abstract The work improvement in neighbourhood development (WIND) training programme provides practical responses to the specific problems of agricultural safety and health. It applies a participatory and action-oriented training approach designed for rapid and sustainable improvements in the safety, health and working conditions of farmers. This programme has been implemented in Viet Nam with the assistance of the ILO and other organizations. This training manual presents a check-list for defining actions and priorities in various fields: materials storage and handling, workstation design and work tools, machine safety, work environment and control of hazardous agents, welfare facilities and work organization. 42 checkpoints related to these fields are described, mentioning the benefits for the farmer and possible improvements.
