Farm Safety: Are You Prepared for the Upcoming Season?

Farm Safety: Are You Prepared for the Upcoming Season?

With every job, you are presented with new environmental risk factors, but some propose more health and safety risks than others. According to the National Safety Council, Agriculture is the most hazardous industry in the nation. Though the rate of fatalities is declining, it still is at the peak.

Every year, thousands of farmers and growers become injured due to various farming accidents. From stress and machinery exposure, to chemicals and excessive noise, there are many different types of hazards that threaten farmers’ lives daily. Analyzing these different factors really puts into perspective the importance of having a safety preparedness plan in place to prevent, and help diminish, the continuously growing accident rate.

Believe it or not, but most deaths in theagricultural industry are caused by damage to farmers who have been compressed or crushed by accidents or misuse of equipment. Managing large equipment is routine in the life of a farmer or grower, but should be evaluated regularly to ensure all equipment meets proper environmental health and safety regulations. At EHS Management, we make it a priority to include a wide range of safety and environmental criteria in our agricultural preparedness plans such as our Respiratory Protection Program, and even establishing safety committees.

For the Agricultural industry, we stress the importance of staying alert and being completely prepared when it comes to the management of large equipment, and the environmental hazards that come with farming. You never know when an accident might happen, so don’t wait another minute.
