National Farm Safety and Health Week
The International Society for Agricultural Safety and Health (ISASH) urges everyone involved in agriculture to recognize National Farm Safety and Health Week on September 17-23, 2017. This week serves as a great opportunity to reflect and revisit the importance of safety on farms or ranches, as well as adopt new and innovative practices to promote the awareness of safety solutions year round.
With a goal of protecting people in agriculture, the 2017 theme, "Putting Farm Safety into Practice," defines ISASH, as our memberships brings together countless agricultural leaders throughout the world. Current ISASH members include engineers, educators, insurers, physicians, nurses, veterinarians, statisticians, communicators, business leaders and others with extensive farm backgrounds.
This year, National Farm Safety and Health Week will dedicate each weekday to relevant topics facing agriculture. 2017 topics include:
• Monday - Tractor Safety
• Tuesday - Farmer Health
• Wednesday – Children & Youth Health and Safety
• Thursday - Confined Spaces in Agriculture
• Friday - Rural Roadway Safety
