'Stay Safe on the Farm' Safety Resources for Primary Schools - The Health and Safety Authority has developed resources to give farm safety messages to Primary students in 30 minutes. These are available at www.hsa.ie/education under Teacher Supports and Resources. These include a Farm Safety Presentation - Primary: a set of seven PowerPoint slides, specifically developed for use in all Primary classes. Teachers can use them with their whiteboards or print off to photocopy. On the Farm videos showcase child safety on the farm from the child's own perspective. In addition to this, the HSA's dedicated e-learning portal www.hsalearning.ie contains a short interactive course for Primary students called Keep Safe on the Farm (two x 40 minute online lessons suitable for the whiteboard). A certificate can be downloaded for the class once complete.
