Farm Safety webinars offered as part of National Farm Safety and Health Week

To ensure the safety of farmers and the hometown communities where they live and work, the CHS Foundation has sponsored a series of webinars on farm safety topics during National Farm Safety and Health Week (NFSHW). Every day from Sept. 18 - 22, AgriSafe will offer free webinars with expert speakers across the country that will address threats that affect farmers and their families.

“AgriSafe will share evidence-based research in practical ways to help producers stay safe on the job and at home,” says Natalie Roy, AgriSafe Executive Director. “Our webinars will share information on heat illness, respiratory protection and illnesses; child safety on the farm and ATV injuries.”

The webinars are supported as part of a recent grant to AgriSafe to better address safety and health concerns in rural communities, and are part of several safety resources during National Farm Safety and Health Week.  Visit the NFSHW website for more resources on how to put Farm Safety into practice.

Support of AgriSafe and NFSHW are just a few of the many ways CHS and the CHS Foundation are improving agricultural safety and enhancing community vitality in rural America.  Watch chsinc.com or visit chsinc.com/stewardship this week for more stories on how our partners are improving ag safety.
