The 2019 data for the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the agricultural sector is still the most dangerous in America with 573 fatalities, or an equivalent of 23.1 deaths per 100,000 workers. Fall harvest time can be one of the busiest and most dangerous seasons of the year for the agriculture industry.

For this reason, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety and Health Week. This annual promotion initiated by the National Safety Council has been proclaimed as such by each sitting U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. National Farm Safety and Health Week is led by the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), the agricultural partner of the National Safety Council.

National Farm Safety and Health Week 2021 is September 19-25. Each day throughout the week, AgriSafe will host two free webinars on the topics below. More information and links are available on the National Farm Safety and Health Week website.

The daily topics of focus are:

  • Monday - Tractor Safety & Rural Roadway Safety
  • Tuesday - Overall Farmer Health
  • Wednesday - Safety & Health for Youth in Agriculture
  • Thursday – Agricultural Fertilizer & Chemical Safety
  • Friday - Safety & Health for Women in Agriculture
