National Farm Safety and Health Week Uplifts Agricultural Workers

National Farm Safety and Health Week Uplifts Agricultural Workers

The event, hosted by the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety, will run from September 21 to September 25.

The National Education Center for Agricultural Safety’s National Farm Safety and Health Week will start on September 21 and run through September 25.

The week-long event was created to combat the dangers of the agricultural industry during fall harvest, which includes about 23.4 deaths per 100,000 workers, according to 2018 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The theme for this year, Every Farmer Counts, will celebrate farmers and acknowledge the difficulties they have encountered during the pandemic this year.

Each day of the week will highlight a new topic. The first day of National Farm and Health Week will focus on tractor safety and rural roadway safety and will go on to include topics like overall farmer health and safety and health for women in agriculture.

Webinars that correspond with the day’s designated topic will be held to further inform participants and provide an interactive experience.
