IFA to Host Online Quad Safety Training Information Meeting

IFA will hold an online information webinar on Quad Safety Training to encourage farmers to complete quad safety training course.  It will take place on Tuesday, June 25th at 8.00pm.

Anyone interested can attend by registering here.

Topics covered on the night will include an overview of the quad safety training course; what farmers should consider before booking a course; background to new regulations; and key safety practices.

IFA’s Farm Family and Social Affairs Chair Teresa Roche is encouraging all farmers who operate quad bikes to register for the information session on quad safety training.

Regulations governing the safe use of ATV/Quad Bikes in all workplaces (SI 619/2021) came into effect last November.

These regulations have two essential requirements of note:

  • Training to be undertaken with a registered training provider to a QQI standard or equivalent
  • Use of helmets to a (generally) prescribed standard

“This information webinar will provide farmers with knowledge to get the most out of the quad safety training course, while learning about key safety practices, understanding the latest regulations and get answers to your questions,” she added.

Register here to ensure you are fully informed and ready to minimise risk on the farm.
