Farm Safety Week

The third annual Farm Safety Week will run from 6 to 10 July 2015. Agriculture has the worst record for safety of any occupation in the UK and Ireland so it’s time to get involved, you only have to look at recent HSE cases/prosecutions and their associated fines served on farmers who have put their staff at risk to realise that employee (casual or otherwise) safety should not be ignored. Make sure you don’t cut training corners and end up paying the price. We can provide suitable training to help you reduce the risk of farm related accidents. Have your employees been trained to operate your ATV’s safely? Do they know the correct procedures for working at heights or using pesticides? Why not use farm safety week to review your training requirements, let us know what areas need work and we can help put a training plan together in time for future funding applications.
