Farm Safety Check
Does your farm have a health and safety program?
As a farmer, you make financial decisions every day related to your operation such as buying equipment, selling grain and hiring custom applicators for chemicals or manure. Another important financial decision is having a safety and health program for you and your employees. A sound safety and health program is an effective way to manage risks, protect your business and the people working and living on your farm.
Did you know that less than half of farms have a safety or health program in place? Start the New Year by making a decision to create (or update) a safety and health program for your farming operation. Whether you have five, ten or 100 employees, a safety and health program can help you reduce injuries and illnesses by creating a positive, safe workplace for everyone.
