“This lesson shows the dangers of using farm machinery. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt or injured.”

Fianna Fáil Senator, Paul Daly, has received confirmation from the social media site, TikTok, that videos, which appeared on site showing people using farm machinery in a hazardous way, have been removed.

In a statement this afternoon (Friday, May 29th), Senator Daly commented, “I want to commend TikTok for their swift action in removing these videos from their platform.”

'Reckless behaviour'

“This reckless behaviour has no place on our farms, and I worried more videos of the same nature would be created if something wasn’t done early to halt this growing and dangerous trend.

“As I have previously outlined, by their very nature, farms are dangerous places due to the presence of heavy machinery, livestock, sharp tools and the need to work at heights.”

Estimates show there are approximately 140,000 family farms in Ireland, each of which is a place of work where children, working adults and the elderly can all live together, Daly added.

“With more children at home from school due to the pandemic, naturally they may be helping out with farming and risks increase.”

Farm Safety Agency Bill

“It is because of these fears, I introduced the Farm Safety Agency Bill in the last Seanad. The aim of the Bill is the creation of a stand-alone body focused on improving safety for Irish farmers and their families. At the first opportunity, I intend to re-introduce this Bill in the Oireachtas.

“This lesson shows the dangers of using farm machinery. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt or injured. We need a redoubling of efforts in promoting farm safety,” concluded Senator Daly.
