A Kubota backhoe is a piece of equipment that is fitted to a variety of different Kubota tractors, and need special care and attention as its attachment to the tractor can generate an element of risk in its usage, and also an element of risk to those in the surrounding area where it is being used.
The majority of the Kubota tractors used either on farms or in agricultural settings or in large garden/land horticultural businesses.
A lot of these businesses have both environments and workforce which are markedly different to those of a standard business, either industrial or office environments, and special care should be taken in terms of understanding the work activity factors that affect the potential risk of injury or damage to either people working on the farm or in the surrounding areas.
There are a number of factors that relate to the safety risks concerning usage of Kubota tractors and Kubota backhoes, and many relate to the type of work hours and work routine that will be found in such an agricultural land led business.
The work environment and workplace in a farm has often been described as somewhat erratic.
This is because the hours can be very long a lot of time, people often working extremely long days, with workweeks of between 60 and 90 hours a week not uncommon.
The other factor that affects the work environment is that of mother nature.
Many people moan about the weather to different reasons, but anyone who engage in any type of work that relies on Kubota tractors notice that the weather plays a huge part in the reality and practicalities of what work can be done and when it can be done.
The nature of the work done on a farm or in an agricultural type environment means actually large extent it is led by the weather.
The other thing that affects the nature of the work significantly is that of mechanical breakdowns of machinery.
Any form or agricultural complex relies on numerous pieces of machinery, many of which is needs are interdependent.
Much of this machinery is quite old and often after a while not serviced or maintained quite as it should be.
This means that machinery tends to break down fairly frequently, and aside from this preventing the work being done that the piece of machinery is related to, often has a knock-on effect on the rest of the work within the farm or agricultural complex
