Farm Safety with the National Farm Medicine Center

It is no surprise that farming can have its fair share of hazards that can threaten the safety of farmers, workers and children. It doesn’t matter how long someone has worked on a farm or around animals for incidents to occur. 

I sat with Scott Heiberger, communications manager with the National Farm Medicine Center in Marshfield, Wisconsin,  to discuss the latest in farm safety and how the center has strived for 25 years of success in promoting farm safety. We talked about how the center has promoted education to protect workers and children on the farm and how to create a culture of safety. 

Heiberger said mental sustainability, with getting proper sleeping, taking breaks and getting enough food, goes a long way to keeping you and others safe.
