Agricultural Safety and Health

In addition to its importance in providing food and fiber, agriculture is also the largest industry in most areas of the South.  Unfortunately, many agricultural workers and their family members are injured or become ill due to hazards in agricultural workplaces.  And, people who live or travel in rural areas may also be exposed to hazards of "hobby farming" or the presence of large, slow-moving agricultural vehicles on public roads.
Please take time to learn about the risks and how to protect yourself, your family and your friends from these threats to your health.

UT Extension announces availability of agricultural safety funds to support local programs.  UT Extension staff are invited to submit competitive proposals for funding to support local  or regional agricultural safety efforts.
