Assessing and Reducing Risk on Your Farm
Free Ag Health Risk Assessment
The Ag Health Risk Assessment (AgHRA) is a service provided by the AgriSafe Network. The assessment can be completed in 10 minutes or less. It includes a general health history, including age, height, and weight. More specific questions are asked about ag-related health risks, including hearing, vision, skin cancer, musculoskeletal/ergonomics, respiratory exposure, stress and coping issues, and emergency preparedness.
The AgHRA provides basic responses to individual health risks. It’s not intended to replace visits to the health care provider or regular screening exams.
Check out these fact sheets to reduce risk to several different age levels on the farm:
