Saturday, February 29, 2020

Across the country, county and state Farm Bureaus are making safety a priority through the Agricultural Safety Awareness Program. As part of ASAP, March 1-7 has been designated as Agricultural Safety Awareness Week. U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers will join Farm Bureau in promoting the week with its theme “20:20 Vision on Ag Safety.”

A different safety focus will be highlighted by the Montana Farm Bureau and U.S. Ag Centers each day of the week: Monday, March 2 – Mental Health, Tuesday, March 3 – Transportation Safety, Wednesday, March 4 – Weather Disasters, Thursday, March 5 – Confined Spaces, Friday, March 6 – Farmer Wellness.

During this week and throughout the year, Farm Bureau is encouraging farmers to make safety a priority on the farm.

“Agricultural safety is critically important on America’s farms and ranches,” said Montana Farm Bureau President Han McPherson. “By investing in safety and health in agricultural communities, we’re able to help save lives and resources through the prevention of injuries and lost time on the job.”
