Fall Harvest Farm Safety

Fall Harvest Farm Safety
By: Brenda Miller, University of Minnesota Extension-Todd County
Now that harvest season is upon us, it is important to remind ourselves to be safe when operating equipment. Accidents can happen in less than a blink of an eye and can have devastating outcomes. Here are 10 things to keep in mind as you go through this harvest season.
1. Do not expose children to hazards. Teach them farm safety at a young age. Children watch everything you do. If you put yourself in a potentially hazardous situation then they will think it is ok, mimic you and bad things will happen. Explain to a child the importance of WHY and HOW they should or should not act around machinery or other farm hazards. If you teach them right when they’re young, it will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
