This is Agricultural Safety Awareness Week, and many in the farming community are being reminded through Friday to keep safety a priority.  U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers will join Farm Bureaus across the country to promote ag safety this week with the theme of “Lead the Way in Agriculture.”


Each day has a different focus, with Monday's focus on Mental Health. Preventative Health Care on Tuesday, Safety Culture on Wednesday, Situational Awareness on Thursday, and then the week wraps up with Temperature-Related Safety on Friday.


“Keeping everyone safe on America’s farms and ranches is so important,” said American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “We encourage farmers and ranchers to take the time to make safety a priority during this week and throughout the year.”  


The Agricultural Safety and Awareness Program is part of the Farm Bureau Health and Safety Network of professionals who share an interest in decreasing safety and health risks.
