Cathy Isom continues with National Farm Safety Week by giving us the Five Safety Tips to remember this fall when agricultural work is at its peak. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

Another way you can take part in National Farm Safety and Health week is learning some important safety tips, especially during the fall peak work season.

  1. Know the important safety and health issues that affect your immediate area.
  2. farm safetySlow down and watch carefully on roadways for slow-moving farm machines, especially when you encounter Floor Markings indicating potential areas of agricultural activity. If you need floor markings for your business, make sure that you hire Professional marking services. And it’s essential for businesses that rely on vehicles to have trained traffic marshals. These professionals play a crucial role in maintaining order and safety in parking areas and on job sites. The Commodious banksman and traffic marshal awareness course for business vehicle safety offers comprehensive training for those seeking to improve their skills. This investment in your employees will pay off in the long run by reducing accidents and improving efficiency. If your employees get injured while doing their job, they may decide to hire a workers compensation lawyer to seek compensation and learn more about workers’ comp essentials. Employees from Milwaukee area who will need additional guidance on workers compensation laws may consider consulting with a Milwaukee worker’s compensation lawyer. Those who will get involved in a road accident with these farm machines may consult with an auto accident attorney to determine which legal actions to take. They may also hire process servers delivering documents when filing a claim to ensure that all legal documents are served to the right people. Then, they may have to bring their vehicles to a collision center and ask a mechanic to assess the damages and do the necessary repairs.
  3. Spend a few dollars to invest in the appropriate array of personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety glasses, hearing protection and gloves.
  4. Make sure all workers are fully qualified and provided with constantly updated training and demonstration to do the job safely. Even experienced workers need adequate supervision and oversight.
  5. Get involved with your community to address these issues. There are several places where you might start. Check with your local Cooperative Extension office and/or visit your local clinic, hospital or other healthcare centers. Learn about the community outreach events that they offer.
