National Farm Safety and Health Week: Safety & Health for Youth in Agriculture
ATVs are used by many people on the farm, including youth. Add their desire to have a good time and they have a high risk of injury. As an adult, be a role model. Set a good example by wearing PPE and using ATVs safely.
Protect the most important thing you’ll ever raise. Be a parent first, farmer second. Do all you can to make your farm safe for children. Keep young children out of the worksite and off equipment by creating areas for safe play.
Do you have children working on the farm? Approximately 33 children are injured on the farm every day. You can help protect your child from injury by assigning age-appropriate tasks.
