Funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine under the EIP Initiative, this project aims to deliver innovative online health & safety training to farm families.
The training aims to affect behaviours in order to achieve better farm safety on Irish farms.
Together with a farm safety communications programme, the online training will be available to farm families throughout Ireland.
Our project works in partnership with farm families to promote a new cost effective and sustainable training-led approach to foster farm health, safety and wellbeing within each generation of the farm family unit.
The approach emphasizes the need for farm families to work together to achieve a safer environment and help each other to adopt a safety-first culture.
The programme and its evaluation aims to both develop the requirement for change and further develop farm safety culture within farm households by encouraging all family members and influencers to participate.
The programme is farmer friendly, family friendly and can further develop the capacity for behavioural change on farms.
Learning outcomes, assessments and evaluations can be used to further develop and contribute to a cost effective national training model for farm health and safety.
The training will be available free of charge as a result of the EIP funding, in June 2023.
