SAFETY AND RESCUE DEMOS

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.

UMASH is providing five safety demonstrations at Farmfest 2022. This is an excellent, first-hand opportunity to see potential dangers on the farm and learn ways to prevent injury.

During Minnesota Farmfest 2022, stop by the UMASH Wellness Pavillion, visit the exhibitors, and take in the live farm safety demonstrations.

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