I went to an agri engineer for my work exp. Did it in September. But I was 15 then, so there was a lot of health and safety. Seeming as you are 17 they should take you on if you have a tractor licence. But dont expect them to say yes. Its always good to have a second placement in case you dont get accepted.

S'all about experience, that determine whether you get straight onto a tractor, however you may then have to prove yourself first.

I also did mine at the local ernest doe&sons (new holland) and ther was loads of HSE aswell; i wasnt allowed anywhere near the workshop, had to work in parts dept, Rolling Eyes and i got a folder at the beginning that was about 2inches thick that had ALL the risk assessments and safety guidelnes in it which I was supposed to read on the first night Confused Rolling Eyes Exclamation Question

Yeah that was my main problem as well. However I was allowed in the workshop. But what I cant understand is how can you actually experience the job when you cant go anywhere near the place? If you ask me health and safety needs to be toned down A LOT. And while Im on ranting, political correctness has gone too far as well, but thats off topic.

I suppose they can't 'tone' down because, Agriculture has a high risk factor, and there are many deaths in the industry every year, which was highlighted in a 2 page spread in the Farmers Weekly not to long ago. I think if a child was injured or killed on work experience on a farm, or something related to agri, then they would be seriously doomed. The rules are there for a reason, and I think without the rules, there could be a lot more accdients due to this.

Just a thought chaps.

yeh i mean i didnt mind because I appreciated that it was for my own good. The schools and businesses probably dont like it either, but if they tone down and someones kid gets hurt, there are many parents who wouldnt waste any time in sueing straight away, so i guess theyre protecting themselves
