The American Farm Bureau’s Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) provides leadership and assistance to local and state Farm Bureaus. The goal of ASAP is to promote safety and health in agricultural and rural communities to:
- Reduce the number of farm work-related injuries and deaths by increasing safety and health awareness and promoting safe practices
- Create media releases and educational materials promoting safety and health in agricultural and rural communities
- Increase public awareness of the importance of safety and health in agriculture
Each March, the American Farm Bureau organizes ASAP week to highlight farm safety and provide education and training resources. During the week, agricultural groups focus on different aspects of farm safety each day, including work in confined animal spaces; equipment operation; electrical safety; and driving precautions.
