UMASH is continuously improving resources in order to better serve the users.
Farm Safety Check has been a key resource for two years, where a monthly topic is highlighted with a short list of checks farmers or farmworkers can walk through on their farm. Safety and health can be overwhelming with the number of hazards on the farm, and the Farm Safety Check has provided a short, monthly reminder to keep safety a part of the farm’s culture.
We’ve performed a quality review on all of our checklists to update links and resources, and created a new two-page fillable pdf with additional space for custom lists and recommended resources.
To accommodate the additional resources and provide space for personalization, we’ve made the checklists two pages. The back page features checkboxes each operation can customize to fit their farm, and additional resources from reputable sources.
To make the checklists accessible and user-friendly, we’ve changed the format. All checklists are now fillable-forms. The PDFs can be downloaded and filled out on a computer or tablet.
