The Rural Industries Section of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Ireland Branch is to study some key health and safety concerns in a meeting next month.

Entitled Cultivating a safer future in rural Ireland, the event will take place on March 6th at Dundrum House Hotel, where primary issues relating to machinery, quad bikes and power take-off driven equipment will be raised.

Michael Cusack, rural industries section chair, said: "Farming equipment, machinery and all-terrain vehicles can be extremely hazardous if they aren’t treated with respect and operated in a safe manner.

"With this event, we’re giving practical advice on how to prevent injuries and ill-health when using them."

IOSH is striving to improve standards of health and safety across the UK, though its recent survey has suggested a lack of knowledge when it comes to defibrillators.

Its research found that over half of UK businesses do not own a defibrillator.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801545965-ADNFCR
