Child Agricultural Injury Prevention Workshop
Protecting the future of agriculture
August 14-15, 2018
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Join us and learn how you can help safeguard children and youth who live, work and play on farms and ranches. This information can be used to develop and enhance childhood agricultural safety strategies for your organization.
Click here for more information and to register for the workshop.
Does your 14- or 15-year-old youth want to work in production agriculture?
If they are working off of the family farm or ranch for hire and will be operating tractors or machinery, they need to successfully complete a Hazardous Occupations Safety Training in Agriculture program. The National Safe Tractor and Machinery Operation Program (NSTMOP), available through Penn State University, is a national program that provides locally led training by county extension educators, high school agricultural educators, or other safety professionals.
For more information about NSTMOP visit www.ntmop.psu.edu or call 814.865.7685
I didn’t KNOW
In the U.S. about 40,000 children under the age of 16 are treated in emergency departments for ATV-related injuries each year.
ATV riding is not child’s play.
