Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week is March 4-10
Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week will be celebrated March 4-10. The U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers are joining AFBF in keeping friends and family safe and healthy by recognizing common agricultural hazards with the theme “No One Can Take Your Place.” A specific focus will be highlighted each day of ASAP Week: Monday, March 5 – hearing; Tuesday, March 6 – respiratory; Wednesday, March 7 – distracted and impaired driving; Thursday, March 8 – fire; and Friday, March 9 – general health. Free webinars slated for Monday (hearing safety) and Friday (mental health) will be announced on the AFBF Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Facebook page. Visit the Centers’ YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/USagCenters) for new content and fresh ideas about how to stay safe while working in agriculture, forestry and fishing. Join the movement to #KeepFarmsSafe – use #NoOneCanTakeYourPlace and #ASAP18 to share your own safety messages.
