Isn’t it satisfying to check items off a to-do list? UMASH created a safety resource that allows you to do exactly that.
In 2017, UMASH launched a new resource, the Farm Safety Check. The Farm Safety Check can be used on the farm to evaluate a variety of safety topics, ranging from heat stress to manure gas safety to grain handling and more.
The Farm Safety Check is a printable checklist that can be used on individual operations to identify potential sources of injury, and implement solutions or fixes. We provide a few safety checks for each topic and include space for farmers to customize the checklist to their farm. Suggested resources are included to help address problem areas and provide more in-depth information. With new topics monthly, the checklist keeps farms on track all year without bombarding them with too much new information and additional work. Health and safety on the farm is an attainable goal with some conscious effort in prevention and control measures.

We aim to share our resources far and wide. The Farm Safety Check can be used in many ways, whether that is checking items off the list, sharing with others, or reading through the resources. Farm Safety Check topics can be a great conversation starter on the farm, on social media, and within agricultural companies to reinforce safety practices throughout the year.
The Farm Safety Check is a free, quick, already assembled tool that can be used to prevent injuries from happening by identifying and addressing risks. Injuries and incidents cost farms time, money, and even lives, so let Farm Safety Check keep you on the right track each month.
The Farm Safety Check is FREE to use and share for educational purposes. If you are interested in co-branding our Farm Safety Check materials, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
