Safe Agri Skills

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.

If you have a group interested in completing some of the courses contact us and we will be happy to organise in your area.

Courses can also be completed online by visiting our Teachable platform here.
