Farm Safety Week 2017 -  July 24th to 28th 

Welcome

Welcome to the Teagasc farm health and safety web pages. We aim to assist farm family members and those working on farms to minimise the risk of injury and to promote health. Teagasc works with other organisations including the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and member organisations of the HSA Farm Safety Partnership Advisory committee to deliver an effective health and safety service.

Introduction

Health & Safety is relevant to all farming businesses. As a farmer you are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of yourself, employees and others that may be affected by what you do. This includes contractors, casual or part time workers, trainees, neighbours, and family members. In these dedicated Health & Safety web pages we aim to support you in ensuring that your farm is safe, healthy, and legally compliant.

Teagasc want you to work in a safe working environment to maximise your income and ensure a quality of life for you and your family.
