Red Tractor farm assurance changes —Combinable Crops 1/2 Day Course 9th February 2022

On the 5th January Red Tractor began a consultation to review the farm assurance scheme for the fifth time since its introduction in 2000. From November 21 new audit changes have come into effect , the most notable changes are under personnel where you will now be expected to show a documented Health & Safety policy for the farm and a mass balance calculation has also been added as part of renewable Energy.

With these changes in mind we are running 2 half day sessions with Richard Martin (Red Tractor Assurance scheme auditor) on these changes with specific emphasis on the following:-

General employer H&S requirements
Farm Safety Risk assessment & H&S policy
Mass Balance calculation
Areas on audits that are always an issue
Best practice for organizing your audit

We have been using Eastern Training Alliance since it started. It has always provided us with a cost-effective, comprehensive schedule of training for all of our staff across the arable, livestock, maintenance, business park, AD and office departments. They keep abreast of industry requirements which, as we know have kept changing, and through our annual meeting, we have been able to discuss the timings of our programme so that it can fit in with our business needs.

We at J S Wright and Sons Limited have been members of Eastern Training Alliance for as long as I can remember. The communication is always efficient and the courses offered are first class with excellent trainers. You can stipulate if you want a certain trainer for a certain course if you find one that understands the way you work better than others, If a course is not offered you are given a guiding hand as to where you might find something suitable. We do not go anywhere else for any of our training unless Eastern training Alliance don’t offer it
