Farmers Asked To Submit New Ideas To Improve Farm Safety

Farmers and members of the agriculture sector in Wicklow and around the country are being asked to submit new and innovative ideas to improve farm safety.

One million euro in funding will go towards the development, trials and roll out of the proposals, which can be submitted until January 29th.

Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture Martin Heydon says he was keen to keep farmers centrally involved in the safety standards process as farming accidents account for half of all workplace fatalities in Ireland.
