Farm safety remains to top concern for the Union. More often than we would like, we are reminded that farms are busy workplaces which can be dangerous. The Union has been working with the HSENI and this important issue and is a member of the Farm Safety Partnership, which aims to increase awareness of farm safety and to reduce work related fatalities and injuries on farms, and at every opportunity we remind farmers to stay farm safe.
We are actively encouraging all farmers to take part in the FarmSafe awareness workshops, which are delivered across NI.
Farmers can also access an online farm safety tool to help them keep farm safe.
For more information what you can do to keep farm safe please view the Farming Safety app.
