Safety Tips for Farms

Farm Safety Tips | via MinnesotaTurkey.com

Our office received an email today from one of our grower members, asking for resources about farm safety – especially fire and weather safety.

I took a look around, did a Google search or two, and came up with a few links that hopefully are helpful to farmers. Check these out:

University of Minnesota Extension – Extreme Weather section / tips for farms:

Iowa State University has this Farm Safety PDF with quite a bit of information.

Here’s a decent Barn Safety Checklist.

Some good information here, as well, on Farm Fire Prevention and Safety.

And the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center has a plethora of resources for farms and farm workers – include several different farm safety checklists that you can find here.

Are there other websites and resources I’m missing? If so, please comment below and I’ll them to this list!
