Summary

Farms and ranches are wonderful places for children and youth to live, work and play. However, agriculture is one of our most hazardous occupations and the only worksite where children of any age can legally be present. The purpose of this presentation is to increase knowledge and awareness of agricultural child injuries and extend the reach and dissemination of childhood agricultural injury prevention (CAIP) strategies and resources.

At the conclusion of the training:

    • Describe the benefits and risks of growing up on a farm
    • Identify effective safety policies and strategies
    • Identify resources and organizations that can work together to promote farm safety
