Sep 10, 2015YouTube channel ready for National Farm Safety Week
The 10 U.S. Agricultural Centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) are positioned to promote safety solutions during National Farm Safety and Health Week (Sept. 20-26), and year round.
The centers have pooled their expertise on a YouTube channel featuring 80 videos. The videos can be used by Extension agents, agricultural science teachers, producers, first responders, families and others interested in agricultural safety best practices.
Popular topics include grain bins, dairy, tractor rollovers and heat illness. Five new videos were added recently, including four on needlestick injuries (two Spanish, two English), and one on hearing protection.
The 2015 theme for National Farm Safety and Health Week is, Ag Safety is not just a slogan, it’s a lifestyle.” For more information on National Farm Safety and Health Week, and safety resources, visit the website of the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety.
