Farm ve­hi­cle safety

Irish Examiner - Farming - - GENERAL FARMING -

In 2017, 58% of farm work­place deaths in­volved farm ve­hi­cles. Our sym­pa­thy goes out to all the be­reaved.

Al­ways stay in con­trol of ve­hi­cles and watch out for by­standers.

Some ac­ci­dent vic­tims driv­ing trac­tors were found close to the trac­tor, or were run over. Al­ways op­er­ate a trac­tor from its seat, and en­sure you can op­er­ate the con­trols.

Do not lean out of the driv­ing po­si­tion; fall­ing out can re­sult in death due to crush­ing
