Agriculture ranks among the most hazardous industries, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Farmers, farm workers, and farm families are at very high risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries.

The UMASH Wellness Pavilion is a fun and engaging way to get the attendees of Minnesota Farmfest excited about Living Healthy, Farming Safely. UMASH brings health and safety partners together to promote safety, health, and injury prevention with safety and health resources for farmers, farmworkers, and families.


During Minnesota Farmfest 2024, stop by the UMASH Wellness Pavilion, visit the exhibitors, and take in the live farm safety demonstrations.

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

Safety demonstrations will be presented by expert demonstrators, covering a variety of farm safety topics.
