Parent-Kid Farm Safety Contract – #GBSW14

Ask most farmers and they’ll tell you that kids build confidence and learn to be responsible when they help out around the farm. Unfortunately, this life lesson can have dangerous consequences. According to a 2012 study, nearly 27,000 children are injured or killed on U.S. farms and ranches every year.

The Parent-Kid Farm Safety Contract is both a conversation-starter about farm safety and an agreement that lets the parent and child create a customized farm safety contract. Become aware of the hazards, restrictions, and safety rules that can help prevent injuries. It’s time to work together to lay out some basic rules for working safely on the farm – and the consequences for rule breaking.
