AGRI-VEHICLES STANDARDS & FARM SAFETY DEMO IN KILKENNY
Carlow and Kilkenny IFA will hold an information event for farmers focussed on farm safety and the revised standards for agricultural vehicles on Wednesday, October 4th in Cillin Hill, Kilkenny at 11am.
The outdoor event, in conjunction with An Garda Siochana, Kilkenny Mart, FBD and IFA’s Theft Stop initiative, will have a full display of agricultural machinery and vehicles and will outline the requirements to comply with the current legislation.
The event will focus on identifying safety hazards of working on farms and with machinery, and ways to minimise the risks to farmers and their families.
Members of an Garda Siochana will be on hand with a weighbridge to demonstrate the towing capacity of jeeps and other vehicles and the required lights, makings and other standards for tractor trailers and other agricultural equipment when using the public road.
All are welcome!
