“Shift Farm Safety Into High Gear.”

Lisa Pfeifer – OSU Ag Safety and Health Education Coordinator:

National Farm Safety and Health Week is September 15-21, 2019. Farm safety is a necessary every day practice, but this week allows advocates and safety professionals across the country to turn the spotlight on safe worker practices on the farm by highlighting a topic each day and providing an information push of resources as we all work to “Shift Farm Safety Into High Gear.”
OSU Agriculture Safety & Health would like to share some Ohio State University Extension and federal information resources to support improving safety in each of the daily focus areas.
