ESB Networks Supporting Farm Safety Week 2018 /
As part of National Farm Safety week, we meet the victims of farm related accidents who have shared their story. Through ESB Networks’ Safe Family Farms initiative with the Irish Farmers Journal we are creating awareness of key safety messages and continuing to develop our relationship with the farming and rural communities. This campaign is a very important one for ESB Networks as it supports our commitment to Public Safety and to raising awareness of the issue of electricity safety, particularly with those within the farming community. The Farm Safety week campaign is running on ESB Networks’ external social media channels and will be included in this week’s edition of The Farmer’s Journal.
