Tips & Advice for Staying Safe on Farm


Accidents on farms are a continuing cause of concern and on this week’s episode of the Beef Edge podcast, Teagasc Health & Safety specialist John McNamara, joins Catherine Egan with some tips for farmers in advance of Farm Safety Week.

Ireland and the UK have joined forces for Farm Safety Week 2020, taking place from July 20th to 24th and John highlighted the importance of safety around machinery and livestock. As farmers undertake maintenance work at a height, an assessment of the task needs to be considered to carry out the repair safely. John also urges farmers to update their Farm Risk Assessment Document.
