PRESS RELEASE August 28, 2019

National Farm Safety and Health Week is September 15-21, 2019. Each year since 1944, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety & Health Week. This recognition has been an annual promotion initiated by the National Safety Council and has been proclaimed as such by each sitting U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the first document.

Over the years, the development and dissemination of National Farm Safety & Health Week materials has shifted to the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS). NECAS is the agricultural partner of the National Safety Council and has been serving families and businesses in agriculture since 1997. The 2019 theme for National Farm Safety & Health Week is “Shift Farm Safety into High Gear”.

This year there are themes to focus on for each day of National Farm Safety and Health Week with a webinar planned for noon each day, for webinar details and to register visit the Agrisafe NFSHW page.

Monday – Tractor Safety/Rural Roadway

Tuesday – Farmer Health & Opioid/Suicide Prevention

Wednesday – Safety & Health for Youth in Agriculture

Thursday – Confined Spaces in Agriculture

Friday – Safety & Health for Women in Agriculture

Locally, in honor of National Farm Safety and Health Week, the Fannin County Young Farmers Association is sponsoring a class in Basic First Aid and Basic Agricultural related safety taught by Mrs. Anne Gibbs Fannin County High School Health Occupations Instructor and RN in conjunction with Fannin County EMS on September 16 at 6:00pm at the Fannin County Agriculture Facility at 43 Station Ridge Blue Ridge.
