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.
In an effort to reduce accidents by developing "safety-minded" youth, Kansas Farm Bureau has sponsored a Safety Poster Program since 1950.
Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) Week is less than a month away and will be celebrated March 3-9, 2019. The theme for the week will be "Safety: Know Your Limits" and will focus on a different safety topic each day of the week. A toolkit is now available to assist you in promoting ASAP Week.
