Chairman of the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI), George Lucas, has launched the ‘Avoid Harm on the Farm’ 2017 calendar.

The calendar features winning entries from this year’s child safety on farms poster competition.

This year over 5,000 school children from over 100 schools submitted entries.

This year the calendar has been sponsored by a number of the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP) Affiliate organisations, ABP Group, AES UK and Ireland, Asda, IOSH and the Northern Ireland Safety Group. As FSP Affiliates these organisations have pledged to use their position and resources to promote the farm safety message and HSENI is very grateful for their support.
