Sun safety while driving tractors

IMG_0573If you are driving a tractor without a cab on it, you are exposed to the hot  sun and need to take a few precautions.

  • Wear hats with wide brims that cover the face, neck, and ears
  • Cover as much of your body as possible with light clothing
  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher and reapply often
  • Wear sunglasses to filter out UV rays

We know a farmer’s job is never done, even in the hot sun, so protect yourself and your family from long-term sun damage. Set a good example for the kids and keep your skin protected and healthy!

For more information on sun safety, take a look at our Sun Safety fact sheet.
