What’s New in Tractor and Agricultural Vehicle Safety (1:00 pm EDT)
Tractors have traditionally been a leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries on and around farms and ranches. Other agricultural vehicles are adding to this trend. This webinar will cover the basic hazards associated with agricultural tractors and agricultural vehicles and how to prevent injuries from these hazards.
Intended Audience: Safety professionals, educators, students, Ag workers, Ag business employees, and healthcare workers
Rural Road Safety: A Shared Responsibility (3:00 pm EDT)
Rural roads play an important role in moving people and goods in the U.S., but all too often, crashes occur, and fatalities happen. These fatalities are not just statistics, but are our loved ones and community members, so how do we proactively work to reach zero? In this webinar, we will examine the concept that rural road safety is a shared responsibility, discuss safety culture, and delve into some strategies that can be used to improve safety for all rural road users. You will leave this webinar with actions you as an individual can take to make a difference.
Intended Audience: The attendees for National Farm Safety and Health Week including farmers, rural nurse practitioners, and rural clinicians.
