SIXTY SECOND VERSION
You wouldn't think of sending a 5-year-old down a mine shaft alone, or allow an 8-year-old to play at a construction site.
But how many times do children have the run of your farm? The farm can be a wonderful place to play, but children always must be aware of hidden dangers on the farm.
Agriculture is just as dangerous as mining or construction work in the number of injuries. Children are not allowed to work in mines or at construction sites, but children do make up part of the work force on our family farms. They live and often play around the work site, too.
You can make the farm safer for children by teaching them to spot hazards around the farm. Practice good safety habits, and insist that they do, too.
This message is brought to you by SAFE FARM, a project of Iowa State University Extension, helping you to make the farm a safe place to live and work.
