2021 Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week is Driving Safety Home

Fri, 26 Feb 2021 12:18:52 CST

2021 Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week is Driving Safety Home Farm Bureaus across the nation are preparing for Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week, Feb. 28 - March 6. U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers will join Farm Bureau in promoting ag safety this week with the theme “Driving Safety Home.”
Farm Bureau and U.S. Ag Centers will focus on sharing information about a different safety area each day of ASAP Week:
Monday, March 1 - Farmer Roadway Safety (farmer perspective)
Tuesday, March 2 - Caretaker Support (caring for aging or ill family members)
Wednesday, March 3 - General Farmer Wellness (staying healthy overall)
Thursday, March 4 - Mental Health
Friday, March 5 - Community Roadway Safety (motorist perspective)

“As recent severe weather and coping with its aftermath continues to affect people across most of the country, focusing on safety becomes even more important on the farm and ranch,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “During Agricultural Safety Awareness Week and throughout the year, we encourage farmers and ranchers to make safety a priority,” he said.
The Agricultural Safety Awareness Program is a part of the Farm Bureau Health and Safety Network of professionals who share an interest in identifying and decreasing safety and health risks. For more information and resources, visit the ASAP Facebook page

Visit the Ag Centers’ YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/USagCenters for new content and fresh ideas about how to stay safe while working in agriculture, forestry and fishing.

The 11 U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers (www.cdc.gov/niosh/oep/agctrhom.html ) are funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
