Farm Bureau Readying for Ag Safety Awareness Program Week

The American Farm Bureau says its groups across the nation are getting ready for Agricultural Safety Awareness Week, which is coming up on May 1-7. U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers will join the Farm Bureau in promotion of the week with the theme as “20:20 Vision on Ag Safety.” Ag Safety Awareness Program Week has a different focus each day. Topics Monday through Friday include Mental Health on Monday, followed by Transportation Safety, Weather Disasters, Confined Spaces, and Farmer Wellness on Friday. Both organizations encourage farmers across the country to make safety a priority on the farm during the week and throughout the entire year. The Agricultural Safety Awareness Program is part of the Farm Bureau Health and Safety Network of professionals who share an interest in identifying and decreasing safety and health risks. They invite farmers to visit their YouTube channel for new content and fresh ideas on how to stay safe while working in agriculture, forestry, and fishing. There’s a lot more information on the Agricultural Safety Awareness Week webpage as well.
