Children and Youth: Living, working and playing safely on farms

Join us as we discuss “Putting Farm Safety Into Practice,” featuring the newly released Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines, which help parents and supervisors assign age appropriate tasks to youth. We’ll also discuss non-working children and visitors to farms and ranches, and ways to keep them safe. Farms and ranches are great places to live, work and play, and there are numerous benefits to growing up on them. However, agricultural worksites are among the most dangerous in the U.S., resulting in numerous injuries and fatalities to youth. For working youth, too many of these injuries and deaths are the result of performing work that does not match their abilities.
