Farmers4Safety and AgriKids have joined forces to launch a farm safety sticker competition entitled ‘Stick 2 Safety’.
The competition calls on Ireland’s communities (schools, farmers, community groups etc.) to help create a safer future on our farms by designing a window sticker.
Farm safety competition
A spokesperson told That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane
“We will provide a template for you to design a sticker on any farm safety theme. The theme is up to you.”
“It could be about quads, PTOs, slurry, animals, vehicles, or the importance of farmer’s/farm families looking after their mental and physical health.”
“With the design, we want to give you the freedom to think outside the box. Come up with innovative ideas and create a picture highlighting farm safety, health, and wellbeing.”
“Along with the design, we want you to write a short note (150 words max.), explaining why you chose to partake in the competition. You can discuss the importance of safety, health, and wellbeing on farms and what it means to you,” the spokesperson added.
“The sticker can be put on farm machinery, cars, vehicles and around the farm or home to shine a light and create greater awareness on the essential role safety and emotional wellbeing play in carrying out jobs on farms.”
Organisers will circulate the winning sticker to the various farming organisations, communities and networks and will win a prize.
The competition aims to highlight and raise awareness of farm safety, health and wellbeing from all skill sets.
Furthermore, organisers believe that this gives the opportunity for everyone to get creative and highlight what farm safety, health and wellbeing means.
“We hope that by getting different age groups within our communities involved, we will achieve a greater reach for farm safety, health, and wellbeing. We will endeavour to put all your entries on our website,” the spokesperson added.
