The article presents tips for farmers from Nick Stevens, farm foreman for A4 Farmers in Wiltshire, England. To ensure he always has a ready supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) on hand, even when away from the farm, Stevens has mounted a specially-made, twin-compartment, waterproof box on his self-propelled sprayer. This allows him to keep fresh supplies of coveralls, gloves and dust masks, plus a faceshield in a separate compartment from any protective equipment which has already been used.
