Farm Safety The Lost Lifes & Injuries

Posted in Category(ies):  Other News

2014 was a horrendous year on Irish farms in terms of lost lives and injuries suffered.

All of us involved in the agri-industry should highlight the risks involved on an ongoing basis, the fact that 176 men, women & children have been lost through farm accidents in 9 years is horrifying. Please highlight on-farm inadequacies to your friends, family, neighbours and perhaps look a little closer yourself when on-farm.

Our roads are indeed very dangerous places and so unfortunately are our farmyards, Irish farms have become increasingly dangerous with a total of twenty seven fatalities on farm this year alone, we all must agree this figure is way too high.
