Farming is ingrained in the culture of this nation throughout generations. It is a way of life for so many families. Unfortunately, by its nature, it’s also a very hazardous occupation. In the last 10 years, excluding 2017 statistics over 200 families have suffered the loss of a loved one because of an accident on Irish Farms. Over 45% of those fatalities in the last 10 years have involved children or older farmers.
Agricultural-related fatalities is far higher than any other economic sector, this is due part to the blurring of the farm as a giant playground and place of residence. It is essential that all farmers take a proactive role in promoting farm safety and by putting health and safety issues at the top of their agenda. A farm accident can happen on any farm, but all too often farmers think “It won’t happen on my farm”
The first step that all farms can take is to complete a Farm Safety Risk Assessment Document and a Safety Statement and ensure everybody who works on your farm reads and understands it.
Do not act in haste. Spare a second of your time and reflect on the actions you are about to take. So many lives are lost by people taking chances and not realising the potential outcomes that may happen.
