The Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) is a national organization promoting agricultural safety and health. This week (March 4th-10th) is their agricultural safety awareness week. As part of safety awareness week, Wisconsin State Farmer is having a social media event called “No One Can Take Your Place”. Each day they will cover a topic in ag safety and health on their social media accounts( click here to see their Facebook page) The themes for each day are:
- Monday, March 5 – Hearing;
- Tuesday, March 6 – Respiratory
- Wednesday, March 7 – Impaired Driving
- Thursday, March 8 – Fire
- Friday, March 9 – General Health
Here is the article announcing their program, which includes a video about lighting safety. I’ll also try to post some additional information on each of these topics as the week goes on.
