HAPPY FARM SAFETY & HEALTH WEEK!
September 16-22 is National Farm Safety & Health Week, as proclaimed by the President. It happens every year during the third week of September.
Join Farm Safety & Health Week by talking farm safety with at least 2 other people this week. Share your stories on our Facebook event wall and on Twitter using #FSHW12.
So how do you strike up a conversation with someone about farm safety?
– Ask them if they’ve had any close calls lately. Seems people love sharing them!
– Ask if they’ve started harvesting. If so inquire about any trouble they’ve had sharing the road with standard vehicles.
– If they have children, find out what chores their kids like to do and talk about age-appropriate tasks. NAGCAT can help that conversation.
– Talk drought! There’s an increased chance of harvest related fires as a result.
If you just look at things a little differently, you’ll find you can work safety into any just about any conversation!
