You can't improve the weather when you want to, but you can take steps to improve workplace safety.

Your commitment to safety protects workers from exposure to hazards such as the following:

  • Falls.
  • Flying/swinging objects.
  • Handling or working around livestock.
  • Moving equipment (tractors, combines, and other farm equipment).
  • Pesticides.
  • Rotating and moving mechanical parts.
  • Sprain and strains.

Information provided in this topic page can help employers and employees identify and evaluate existing and foreseeable safety and health hazards. It also provides resources to help with training, prevention methods, and the development and implementation of a required written safety and health accident prevention program (APP).
