WHAT IS THE UMASH FARM SAFETY CHECK?
The UMASH Farm Safety Check is a quick monthly review to identify and fix potential hazards before they cause harm to your family and employees – and your bottom line.
Each month, Farm Safety Check will focus on a different topic, offering checklists and tips for identifying hazards, along with resources to remedy any problems. Use the Farm Safety Check checklists and resources to reinforce safety practices throughout the year and help prevent incidents and injuries for workers, visitors, and farm families.
