“Protecting Agriculture’s Future” is an appropriate theme for 2022 National Farm Safety and Health Week, as noted by the AgriSafe Network.

The network recognized the importance of safety in light of the dangers found on farms and ranches. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, about 100 agricultural workers suffer a lost work-time injury every day. In 2019, the industry had a fatality rate of 19.4 deaths per 100,000 workers.
