The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association is telling all farmers who receive a farm safety questionnaire from the Health and Safety Authority to fill it out and return it to help build a greater understanding of this complex issue.
ICSA spokesman on farm safety, John Flynn, said: “Over 3,000 farmers will be receiving this survey in the post from the HSA and I would be strongly encouraging everyone who gets it to give it their attention. The information gathered will be used to inform the HSA’s role in addressing the underlying issues related to dangerous situations in farming life.”
Mr Flynn said the survey is an opportunity for farmers to shape the approach to farm safety in the future.
