Aoibheann and I asked children about farm safety and helped them to fill out a circle the dangers worksheet. Some children knew all the answers but it was amazing to see how many didn't recognise things like the man standing beside a PTO shaft and the flying the kite near esb wires were dangerous.
Let us get back to the farm safety at the ploughing, I think it was a great idea to create a farm safety village where all the farm safety information and groups were together and easy to find. Lots of other places were hard to find in the big set up. I did notice that some exhibitors had farm safety on display in their stands with their products, this was great to see. I think lots of children who knew very little about farm safety before the ploughing could have learnt loads there!
