The Agricultural Safety Awareness Week Program is this week, March 6-10. U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers will join Farm Bureaus across the country to promote ag safety this week with the theme of â€œLead the Way in Agriculture.â€
Each day has a different focus, beginning on Monday with Mental Health. Preventative Health Care, Safety Culture, Situational Awareness, and Temperature-Related Safety will be the focus Tuesday-Friday, respectively.
â€œKeeping everyone safe on Americaâ€™s farms and ranches is so important,â€ says American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. â€œWe encourage farmers and ranchers to take the time to make safety a priority during this week and throughout the year.â€
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. Visit the Centerâ€™s YouTube channel for new content and fresh ideas about how to stay safe year-round.
