The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) publishes new guidance on Safety for Seasonal Workers in Horticulture.

The guidance is aimed to be a useful resource for everyone in the industry, whether self-employed, an employer or an employee.

Most workplace injuries and ill health are foreseeable and preventable. These guidelines will help identify hazards in horticultural workplaces and how to reduce the associated risks.

A recent CSO labour force survey found that, in Ireland three quarters of those working in horticulture were non-Irish nationals. With this in mind, this guide has been provided in over 10 languages. Downloads available here.
