Ag Ed Teacher Resources
Teaching agriculture safety and health is an important topic for the next generation of farmers and related agriculture professions. To assist teachers incorporating agricultural safety and health, UMASH has compiled a list of resources that can be used during the academic school year, such as: lesson plans, awareness events and additional resources to integrate health and safety topics into the classroom in a teacher friendly format. While not an exhaustive list, these resources cover many safety aspects related to agriculture and include tips on how to use the material in the classroom.
UMASH Farm Safety Check
Agriculture can be a dangerous job. Safety and health can be overwhelming with the number of hazards on the farm. Too often we hear or read of farm incidents where a farm worker or family member was seriously injured or killed. At UMASH, we believe these injuries are preventable. The UMASH Farm Safety Check is a quick review to identify and fix potential hazards before they cause harm to your family and employees – and your bottom line. Farm Safety Check will focus on a different topic, offering checklists and tips to help identify hazards, along with resources to remedy any problems.
Viruses are always changing. When a big change happens, scientists call it a new variant. Some variants disappear and never cause harm, while others can make a virus easier to spread, harder to treat, and/or more deadly. The Delta variant is one of the COVID-19 variants that scientists are monitoring. This variant was first discovered in India in December 2020. Since then, it has spread to more than 90 countries. It was first found in the U.S. in March 2021 and is already the most common variant in the United States.
