Agritourism web guide adds new walk-throughs

Just in time for the fall agritourism season, four new walk-throughs have been added to the new interactive web guide, a>www.safeagritourism.com.

Farmers can now select virtual walk-throughs that include corn maze safety, hay-ride safety, machine safety, and walk-ways, surfaces and structures. The walk-throughs identify health and safety hazards and provide resources to fix the hazards.

The walk-throughs and remedies are based on "Agritourism Health and Safety Guidelines for Children," available at www.marshfieldclinic.org/agritourism. The guidelines originally were published in 2007 by the National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety, part of the National Farm Medicine Center at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, Marshfield, Wis.

Features of the interactive guide include:

--Walk-throughs that use photos to contrast improper practices with best practices and guidelines. Review questions and resource information accompany the photos.

--Checklists that operators can print and use to conduct customized walk-throughs to identify safety issues and hazards in their operations.

--Resources page with signs, policies, logs and other practical, ready-to-print items.

For more information on childhood agricultural safety, email the National Children's Center at nccrahs@mcrf.mfldclin.edu, or call 1-800-662-6900.
