ELECTRICAL SAFETY ON FARM VIDEOS ROLLED OUT

Sep 29, 2023 | Featured Articles

A new electrical safety video for Irish farmers, which has been produced by the Farm Safety Partnership Advisory Committee (FSPAC), demonstrates the need for all farmers to check the electrical supply and outputs in their yards and buildings.

This video was developed by members of FSPAC’s Buildings, Working at Height Working Group that includes representation from ESB Networks, the Health and Safety Authority, Teagasc, FBD Insurance, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and the construction industry. 

Martin Heydon TD, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine with special responsibility for farm safety, said that video demonstrates the need for all farmers to check the electrical supply and outputs in their yards and buildings. 

“Doing so makes the farm safe, not only for them, but all visitors and workers on the farm. I’d urge all farmers to set aside time to check their electrical supplies, look at what improvements may be needed, and use a registered contractor to complete the required updates. Minimise the risks and make sure your farm uses electricity safely.”
