Macra is asking young people to take the lead on farm safety, with the launch of their 'Safe Agri Skills‘ Initiative. For the first time ever those working in agriculture are encouraged to complete a suite of short training courses in relevant areas around farm safety. Modules include tractor safety / machinery maintenance, livestock handling, manual handling and first aid & health for farming. There are also optional extras including chainsaw use and ATV quad Bike Safety Awareness Training.
•Register your interest in completing some of the courses on our Skillnet bookings page so we can contact you if a course comes up in your local area or if you have a group interested in completing some of the courses contact us and we will be happy to organise in your area.
