September 12, 2019
The third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety & Health Week annually since 1944.
Over the years, the development and dissemination of National Farm Safety & Health Week materials has shifted to the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety.
NECAS is the agricultural partner of the National Safety Council and has been serving families and businesses in agriculture since 1997.
This year’s theme is “Shift Farm Safety into High Gear,” reminding us that it is everyone’s responsibility to prioritize safety on the farm and the rural roadways of America.
The U.S. Agricultural Centers are promoting the 2019 National Farm Safety and Health Week through social media platforms. These centers have developed a social media kit containing logos, videos, public service announcements and press releases related to this year’s theme.
