Hazards

Use FarmIQ Hazards to record each hazard on your farm along with the action plan you have put in place to deal with it.

Information
  • Hazards and the Action plan to manage them can easily be recorded, reviewed and reported on from your FarmIQ Hazards register.
  • Set up the Action plan so that it generates Tasks. Once complete, the tasks can be recorded as Done and you have a secure record.
  • You can also record a hazard using the Mobile app. This makes it easy to take a photo and upload it to FarmIQ at the same time as you are recording the hazard on the phone.
  • If you enter a hazard on the map or mobile, you need to edit it in the Hazard register to add an Action plan.
