Teagasc farm safety course
Teagasc and the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) are to run training courses to help farmers complete the Farm Safety Code of Practice, which are legally required on all farms.
Twelve people have died and many more seriously injured in farm accidents so far in 2013.
The half-day courses, which will be held in local offices throughout the country, cost €30 and are open to Teagasc clients and non-clients.
Contact your local Teagasc office for course dates.
