National Farm Safety and Health Week 2016
Farm Safety .. A Legacy to be Proud of
September 18-24, 2016
America’s farmers provide us with an abundant food supply. But farmers are exposed to a unique, sometimes hazardous workplace. Agriculture continues to rank as one of the most dangerous occupations in North America and across the globe.
National Farm Safety and Health Week is September 18-24, 2016. This year’s theme is “Farm Safety .. A Legacy to be Proud of”.
The National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), UMASH, and the US Agricultural Centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) are spotlighting agricultural health and safety with a variety of resources for farm workers, their families, and everyone involved in agriculture.
