Farm death reduction welcomed - McGuire

Published: 15 September, 2014

Derg Sinn Féin Councillor Kieran McGuire has welcomed figures that show deaths on farms have halved over the past year.

Cllr McGuire said:

"The latest figures show that deaths on farms have fallen from 11 in the previous year to 4 this year. However, we must not be complacent and strive to bring this figure down to zero.

I would like to thank the Minister Michelle O'Neill and her Department in being proactive in promoting safety on farms. I would appeal to everyone who either works or visits a farm to keep safety in mind so we can eliminate fatal accidents on farms."
