Agricultural Education Teacher Resources

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.

— Mark Van Doren

Agriculture ranks among the most hazardous industries according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Farmers are at very high risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries; and farming is one of the few industries in which family members (who often share the work and live on the premises) are also at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries.

Teaching agriculture safety and health is an important topic for the next generation of farmers and related agriculture professions.

To assist teachers incorporating agricultural safety and health, UMASH has compiled a list of resources that can be used during the academic school year, such as: lesson plans, awareness events and additional resources to integrate health and safety topics into the classroom in a teacher friendly format. While not an exhaustive list, these resources cover many safety aspects related to agriculture and include tips on how to use the material in the classroom.

Resources and lesson plans for a variety of agricultural health and safety topics, awareness events, teaching resources, development opportunities, planning template and more are available on our
