WIND Training Manual Work Improvement in Neighbourhood Development. Practical approaches for improving safety, health and working conditions in agriculture

The WIND Training Manual is therefore designed to help small-scale farmers and their families improve safety and health in their work and their daily lives. The uniqueness of the WIND approach is that it enables the voluntary improvement of working and living conditions through the active participation of farmers, their families and the members of their communities. It focuses on simple and practical solutions that can be achieved using locally available, low-cost materials.

The WIND Training Manual consists of an action checklist and 37 checkpoints in nine sections linked to the checklist. It provides many examples of lowcost improvements and clear illustrations in key technical areas relevant to farmers. The checkpoints represent the most significant areas of concern among the challenges that farmers face every day: materials storage and handling; workplaces and work tools; safety in the use of machinery; the work environment and control of hazardous materials; wellness facilities; organization of work and cooperation; environmental protection; and biological risks.
