Virtual Farm Safety Workshop Slated for September 28
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/23/2022

An online safety and health workshop devoted to safeguarding youth who work on farms will be presented on September 28.

The free workshop is being hosted by AgriSafe Network, the National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety and the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health.

"Since 2009, more youth have died working in agriculture than all other industries combined," said Marsha Salzwedel, Ed.D., project scientist at the National Children's Center. "We can reduce the number of deaths to working youth by assessing their abilities to ensure they can perform the work safely. This workshop will teach participants how to do that."

The virtual meeting will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Attendance will be limited to the first 50 registrants.

Participants can to apply the new knowledge in designing safety strategies for their farms and organizations. The workshop is ideal for farm parents, supervisors, agribusiness, farm organizations, insurance professionals, bankers and lenders, healthcare providers, Extension, FFA advisors, public health officials and media.
