Ag Safety is not just a slogan, it's a lifestyle

Each year since 1944, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety & Health Week.

The 2015 theme for National Farm Safety & Health Week is “Ag Safety is not just a slogan, it’s a lifestyle,” reminds local and rural communities that agriculture is one of the most dangerous occupations in the U.S. and farm injuries and fatalities are preventable through education. The most recent data from the U.S. Department of Labor indicates that in 2013 farming accounted for 500 fatalities, or 23.2 deaths per 100,000 workers.
