Farm Safety: A Legacy to be Proud of

September 19, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) U.S. Ag Centers’ YouTube channel is ready for National Farm Safety Week, Sept. 18–24. The safety videos on the U.S. Agricultural Centers’ YouTube channel are intended to save lives and prevent injury.
 
The 10 U.S. Agricultural Centers, funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), are promoting the channel as their unique contribution to National Farm Safety and Health Week, Sept. 18-26. This year’s theme: “Farm Safety: A Legacy to be Proud of.”
 
The YouTube channel hosts more than 90 safety and health videos related to agriculture, forestry and fishing. The videos can be used by Extension agents, agricultural science teachers, producers, first responders, families and others interested in agricultural safety best-practices.
 
The videos have undergone formal review and only the best are put on YouTube. Popular topics include grain bins, dairy, tractor rollovers, needlestick injuries and heat illness. The most recently-added videos feature dairy stockmanship, in English and Spanish.
 
Agriculture is among our most hazardous industries, with a work-related death rate of 22.2 deaths per 100,000 workers annually, according to the most recent numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, far ahead of transportation (13.1/100,000) and mining (12.3/100,000).
 
NIOSH joins the Ag Centers in recognizing National Farm Safety and Health Week as an opportunity to emphasize the importance of working together to prevent injuries and illnesses to agriculture workers. Additional information and resources for the Week are available through the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety.
