Are you satisfied with the health and safety regulations rolled out at cattle marts? - Take our poll!

Earlier this year, livestock marts across Ireland adopted new health and safety measures to minimise hazards following a serious incident at Aurivo Mohill Mart.

This coupled with significant hikes in insurance premiums has forced marts to roll out significant changes, in a bid to reduce risks and enhance the safety of the customer and staff base.

Mart officials are the only authorised personnel that can gain access to the lairage /sales yard area and in response, mart management staff have introduced pre-sale viewing periods ranging from 15-60-mins, while others have opted to construct walkway viewing facilities.

Other marts have constructed safe viewing areas/ facilities/ passageways, to allow customers to view stock, without direct content.

New signage; additional training of livestock drovers and safety patrons have all formed part of this major change at cattle marts.

Poll

Now that the changes have been rolled out for a number of months, are you satisfied with the new health and safety measures at livestock marts? Let us know in our poll below.
