HSA SAFETY MARCH INSPECTION CAMPAIGN TO FOCUS ON LIVESTOCK SAFETY

Farm Family, Farm Safety

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is running a month-long intensive farm inspection campaign during March.

Inspectors from the HSA plan to visit almost 500 farms over the next few weeks, and there will be a particular focus on the safe handling of livestock. As March is a particularly busy period for calving and the risk of serious injury can be very high, inspectors will be focusing on the common risks encountered and livestock safety in general.

A free guidance document, Safe Handling of Cattle on Farms, is available on the HSA website at www.hsa.ie along with other helpful information and advice on a range of farm safety matters.
