National Agriculture Day 2016
Celebrating Safe and Healthy Ag Workers
March 15, 2016
The United States is home to some of the most productive agriculture in the world. While this industry can be hazardous the U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers believe that the people who produce our food can do their jobs without risking their health and well being.
The U.S. Ag Centers join agricultural associations, corporations, students, producers and their employees in marking the celebration known as National Agriculture Day, March 15, 2016.
“National Agriculture Day serves as a reminder that agriculture is part of us all and we benefit every day from the work people in agriculture do,” said Bruce Alexander, Director for the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) at the University of Minnesota. “We want to highlight the importance of the health and wellbeing of the people in agriculture is to our whole society.”
The U.S. Ag Centers are promoting the theme, “Celebrating Safe and Healthy Ag Workers,” on this 43rd anniversary of National Agriculture Day. #AgDay2016 #farmsafety #USAGCenters
