Farm Safety Week 2019 is underway.
Despite continued efforts to promote the best safe practice and reduce serious injuries and fatalities on the farm, farming continues to prove the most treacherous occupation in this country.
As in the case every year, a number of events and promotions are being held right around Ireland to promote farm safety.
William Shortall from the IFA has more on this week’s podcast (from 14:53).
Also on the podcast this week is Teagasc’s Kenneth Farrell to talk about farming courses and the options available to those looking for a qualification (from 0:53) and IFAC’s Denis McEvoy talks farm succession (9:47).
