Farm Safety Check: STOP-THINK-ACT

Farm Safety Check: STOP-THINK-ACT

JANUARY 2020

This is a simple, yet powerful safety tool that encourages everyone on the farm to consider the task or chore at hand, to ask themselves how their own actions could contribute to a safe and productive outcome and stop if it can’t be done safely.
