Stay Safe, Farmers, and Recognize National Farm Safety and Health Week
This week is National Farm Safety and Health Week – and this year’s theme – Agricultural Safety and Health: A Family Affair – focuses on family farms. The majority of the agricultural industry is still based on families – according to International Society for Agricultural Safety and Health President George Cook. Agriculture is more than seven times as dangerous as other U.S. industries – with 621 fatalities in 2010. The Society encourages everyone to promote awareness of safety solutions all year long.
