I sent some on what's app to the inspector and he uploaded them or whatever last june..sure what else would ya be at in lockdown bar doing this shite for them. Make sure you have the " eye wash kit " visible in the 1st aid box.there pulling on it

They are more worried about the dates on it as well....

That eye wash craic is the greatest load of horse manure they ever came out with, if you get something in your eye that needs washing out the nearest water supply is what you should be after instead of rooting around for a 1st aid box.
You get lime in your eye from liming cubicles and you would understand the benefit of sterilized eye wash and a syringe to get it out fast. Lime sets like cement in your eye so needs to be forced out before it causes damage. i always have eye wash both in milking parlour and carry it on my sprayer. Small money to buy it in the likes of Boots chemist.

I get the issue and you have the eyewash to hand which makes sense compared to having it stuffed in a first aid box on a shelf somewhere.

Im after sending the auditor photos and done the phone calls and he wanted more pictures sent to him and I couldnt log in to the bord bia site so I rang the helpline and they gave me an email adress to send them to. I emailed the stuff on them last friday. I thought that I was finished with it until they rang today saying that only half of the information went through. I am still writing everything down so doing anything like this online is all new to me. I have all the photos both on the computer and I even have copies of the pictures that I could put everything in a envelope and post it off to them but that wont work. Is there anyone else having trouble?
@Peter how did things work out for you in the end, got my notification on friday, could they not just settle for photographs for everything instead of photos for some things, images and scans for other things, I have my farm safety statement on here.. https://www.besmart.ie/ ... and for some reason I cant get into it or reset the password.

Anyone care to list all pictures required for a dairy and tillage inspection and other info required. Will be due one in April and might as well get some of the stuff out of the way early.

I did mine last week and everything was taken with a poor camera on a ten year old phone and I passed no problems.
No scans of anything

They go through your herd book and bord bia book. They zoom in on the medicine cupboard and check everything they can see off your records. They asked us if we had a sheep trailer, what size it was and for a picture of the inside of it. We had a right bollox for our one, never had any issues with any inspector before but this one was out to cause trouble.

Phone call on Thursday pictures done today does the call last long and wat do they ask on it
They will ask alot on medicines esp the odd not the everyday run of the mill ones, what animal got it, date, amounts ect. Once you get over this hurdle it's straight forward then. They pulled me on the dog in the dairy. The dog is like my shadow and is with me the hole time I never copped him in the pic Jesus the big thing they made of it was unreal
