Too often we hear or read of farm incidents where a farm worker or family member was seriously injured or killed, but injuries are preventable. Melissa Ploeckelman, outreach specialist with the National Farm Medicine Center says the center is providing resources to help drastically lower the number of on-farm accidents involving children.
She tells us about the UMASH Farm Safety Check – a quick monthly review to identify and fix potential hazards before they cause harm to your family and employees – and your bottom line. Each month, Farm Safety Check focuses on a different topic, offering checklists and tips to help identify hazards, along with resources to remedy any problems.
