March 5 - 11, 2017 is Ag Safety Awareness Week
If you care about someone, tell them, “Get out of My Space!”
That’s the theme of Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week, March 5‐11. The U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers are joining the American Farm Bureau Federation in urging respect for the safety spaces around hazardous farm equipment and tasks.
Grain bins, grain wagons, manure pits, tractor seats and livestock flight zones are all ‘spaces’ on agricultural operations that require caution. It is easy to take these spaces for granted when you work near them every day, but it only takes a split‐second for disaster to occur.
