A national programme of Half-Day Health and Safety Training courses, organised by Teagasc and the Health and Safety Authority, was launched by the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney. The courses assist farmers to complete a comprehensive farm health and safety risk assessment as required under safety, health and welfare at work legislation.

Encouraging farmers to be more vigilant about safety on their farms, Minister Coveney said: “Developing a culture where farm health and safety is effectively managed is the aim of the risk assessment approach built into workplace health and safety legislation. The availability of short half-day training courses for farmers provides an important facility for farmers to gain a clear understanding of the legal requirements at a practical level.”
