conference paper description
This workshop presents examples of program results and applications that indicate farmers are willing to purchase safety equipment and develop safer working practices. Many of these interventions for improving farmers' safety have been promoted and endorsed by the ag professionals who work directly with farmers. Case study examples show how ag professionals are playing a positive and active role towards improving the safety and health of Iowa's farm families.
