In Ireland, just over 5% of the workforces are employed by the agricultural industry, yet it accounts for the biggest percent of all fatalities, making it the most dangerous work sector Ireland has. ASafe Solutions provide safety for all types of business’ within the Agri sector from small family run enterprises to large commercial facilities.
Many industries in the Agri sector struggle with the current market challenges and at ASafe Solutions we recognise this. High cost of production and low cost of produce is the result of many accidents within the Agri industry.
At ASafe Solutions we understand the strains those working in the Agri industry can be under and we want to provide safety that is practical and affordable. All our consultants dealing with the Agri industry come from Agri backgrounds and know what it takes to be both practical and safe.
ASafe Solutions can offer a variety of services and packages to the Agri industry depending on the size of the farm or business, the reasons for using our service, expectations from using our service and budget.
Do you need it?
Reasonably practicable is a phrase in legislation which means all realistic controls must be in place in order to reduce a risk. Realistic controls take into account both budget and practicality. Our agricultural consultants can advise you on what is reasonably practicable to put in place and also supply you with the paperwork to prove you have done so. The paperwork may include, safety statements, risk assessments, sequenced procedures and any other relevant documentation. ASafe Solutions can also provide or organise training if it is required for a particular type of work.
Like any other business, an agricultural business needs a safety statement. A safety statement must be in place where a work place has three or more employees, family members are included as employees. This means that the majority of farms in Ireland are legally required to hold an up to date safety statement.
