Good Day’s Work is excited to celebrate National Farm Safety Week this year, and we hope that you will do what you can to join us in our mission to promote a safer environment in agriculture.


Farm injuries and fatalities are preventable through education, and this awareness week serves as a good reminder to rural communities that agriculture is one of the most dangerous occupations in the U.S.

The most recent data from the U.S. Department of Labor indicates that, in 2013, farming accidents accounted for 500 fatalities, or 23.2 deaths per 100,000 workers.

The best way to celebrate and promote safety is to get involved. Here are several ways that you can help promote our industry and the importance of safety within it

Visit the National Farm Safety Health Week website to find such resources as brochures, tip guides, safety facts and more. Follow @NECASAG on Twitter to stay up to date about activities during this special week!

If you’ve been in agriculture long enough, you know safety is a real, if not yet formal, grassroots cause, championed by many in the industry. That is why Good Day’s Work is proud to be partners with many farms across America, helping them keep their farm families safe.

Please do your part, and help us spread the word about farm safety.
