Event Description

Caroline Casey, the Water Safety Officer from Cork County Council will give a Farm Safety Talk to a number of primary schools at Tir na Sí Open Farm in Watergrasshill on Wednesday 29 March 2017. The informative presentations will outline the potential dangers of living and working on farms. This drive for greater awareness of the dangers on farms is in line with EU health and safety at work initiatives. EU Commissioner for Agriculture, Phil Hogan, recently stressed that progress was being made and two EU-backed schemes, TAMS 2 and the Green Cert, were laying great emphasis on farm safety, especially for young farmers.
