2023 Ag Safety Awareness Program Week: Lead the Way in Agriculture
Farm Bureaus across the nation are celebrating the Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) this week, March 6-10. U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers join Farm Bureau in promoting ag safety this week with the theme “Lead the Way in Agriculture.”
Farm Bureau and U.S. Ag Centers are sharing information about a different safety area each day of ASAP Week:
Monday – Mental Health
Tuesday – Preventive Health Care
Wednesday – Safety Culture
Thursday – Situational Awareness
Friday – Temperature-Related Safety
“Keeping everyone safe on America’s farms and ranches is so important,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “We encourage farmers and ranchers to take the time to make safety a priority during Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week and throughout the year.”
The Agricultural Safety Awareness Program is a part of the Farm Bureau Health and Safety Network of professionals who share an interest in identifying and decreasing safety and health risks. For more information and resources, visit the ASAP Facebook page.
Visit the Centers’ YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/USagCenters) for new content and fresh ideas about how to stay safe while working in agriculture, forestry and fishing.
Join the movement to keep farms safe and share your own safety messages on social media using the hashtags #ASAP23 and #USAgCenters. The 12 U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers (www.cdc.gov/niosh/oep/agctrhom.html) are funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
