Attention farmers in Kilkenny: IFA is hosting online quad safety training

IFA will conduct an online information webinar on quad safety training to encourage farmers to complete quad safety training. It will take place on Tuesday, June 25 at 8:00 PM.

Anyone interested can sign up by signing up at www.ifa.ie/quadtraining.

Topics covered during the evening include an overview of quad safety training; what farmers should consider before booking a course; background of new regulations; and important safety practices.

Teresa Roche, chair of IFA’s Farm Family and Social Affairs, is encouraging all farmers who operate quad bikes to register for the quad safety training information session.

The regulations for the safe use of ATVs/Quads in all workplaces (SI 619/2021) came into force last November.

These regulations have two essential requirements:

  • The training must be completed with a registered training provider to a QQI standard or equivalent
  • Use of helmets according to a (generally) prescribed standard

“This information webinar will equip farmers with knowledge to get the most out of quad safety training, while learning about key safety practices, understanding the latest regulations and getting answers to your questions,” she added.

Register now www.ifa.ie/quadtraining to ensure you are fully informed and ready to minimize risks on the farm.
