Spring Into Farm Safety

09 May 2017

Further dates for on-farm safety workshops have been announced by the Rural Development Council as part of the Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 - Farm Family Key Skills. 

Farmers, farm family members and farm employees can attend free workshops running in various farm venues across Northern Ireland. The workshops offer practical awareness raising which covers the everyday hazards faced by the farming industry.

Workshops offer a mix of real life stories, up to date information and a practical understanding of on farm risks, how to identify them and how to manage them. Workshops also introduce farmers to the new construction requirements and raise awareness of the ‘Making it Safer’ tool, a key requirement for the new Farm Business Improvement Scheme (FBIS).


See ADVERT FOR DATES.  All workshops commence at 7pm.

Managed by the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), the programme is funded through the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 with support from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
