Improved safety on any farm can begin by increasing your
awareness of farming hazards and making an effort to prepare for a variety of
emergency situations, such as fires, electrical shocks, vehicle accidents,
chemical exposure, and machinery accidents. You can minimize hazards and prevent
accidents by carefully choosing and maintaining the products and machinery you
buy for the farm.
Other steps you should take to reduce the risk of accidents or
injury on the farm include:
Installing retrofit roll-over protective structures (ROPS) on any
tractor made before 1985.
Inspecting your equipment and machinery regularly for any problems.
Replacing all guards on farm equipment after any maintenance.
Following all instructions in equipment operator manuals and on product
Making use of other available safety equipment, such as slow-moving
vehicle emblems, power shields, equipment guards, etc.
For more information about farm safety, visit the web sites of
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the
Protection Agency (EPA), and the
National Ag Safety Database.
