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.

The UMASH Wellness Pavillion is a fun and engaging way to get the attendees of Minnesota Farmfest excited about Living Healthy, Farming Safely. The goal is to promote safety, health, and injury prevention with safety and health resources for farmers, farmworkers, and families. UMASH brings health and safety partners together to offer live ag safety and rescue demonstrations, ag health and safety exhibitors, hands-on activities, and more!

We want you to be safe, healthy and injury free.
