Safety tips for you and your family

There are a number of things on the farm that can affect the safety of your family and workers. This checklist can help you ensure your farm is as safe as possible:

Are you and your workers free of alcohol, drugs and excessive fatigue?

Do you recognize the limitations of workers, especially those older and younger?

Do you make it a practice to never allow extra riders on tractors or other machinery which only have one seat?

Do the lights, flashers and turn signals on farm vehicles used on public roads work, and are they in compliance with state law?

Are all PTO, drive line and master shields in place?

Are all SMV emblems clean and reflective?

Are all machine shop tools in good condition and stored in designated places, and are valuable tools stored in a locked area?

Do you avoid burning ditches and fields on windy days, and never use gasoline to start or accelerate a fire?

Do you have ground fault circuit interrupters installed in damp areas?

Do you refrain from transporting chemicals in the passenger area or trunk of a vehicle?
