This Week is National Farm Safety & Health Week

Sep 20, 2010

This year, there’s a special focus on ATV safety during National Farm Safety & Health Week, which takes place September 19 to 25. The National Education Center for Agricultural Safety leads the effort for the week, has been an annual promotion since 1944.

For 2010, the theme is ATVs: Work Smart. Ride Safe to highlight the safe operation of ATVs across the countryside.

Legislation and training for ATV operation is not consistent between states. You can find your state’s most up to date regulations at www.ATVSafety.gov.
