Safety education provides farm families with the awareness and knowledge needed to reduce safety hazards and protect their families. It is essential that all individuals especially those living in rural settings set aside time to learn safety precautions to prevent unnecessary incidents.
There are many types of hazards - chemical, ergonomic, physical, and psychosocial, to name a few - which can cause harm or adverse effects while at work, home or play.
