Farm Safety Week 2017

Farm Safety Week

Farm Safety Week will takes place this year from 24th – 28th July 2017. The campaign will focus on a different risk each day. Farmers will be encouraged to take some time during the week to assess the safety of routine tasks. The message for Farm Safety Week is that farm safety is a lifestyle not a slogan.

Farming continues to have one of the poorest safety records of any sector in Ireland, last year 21 people lost their lives in farm accidents and 13 people have lost their lives so far in 2017. Despite increased awareness and discussion on safety, farmers of all ages are still taking risks when working and this needs to stop.
