Each year since 1944, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety & Health Week. This recognition has been an annual promotion initiated by the National Safety Council and has been proclaimed as such by each sitting U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the first document.
The US Ag Centers promote the theme “Working to keep farm families, workers and everyone involved in agriculture safe and healthy” to emphasize the importance of the health and well-being of the people working in agriculture.
