Agricultural Safety Day

In rural Kentucky, farm injuries are a reality. Lives are lost, injuries are devastating and economic losses are staggering.

 The South Central AHEC partners with other organizations interested in educating farmers, farm families, and rural communities about safety measures designed to prevent farm injuries and illnesses.

 The Progressive Agriculture Foundation created Progressive Agriculture Safety Days to promote safety to young people. The Kentucky Partnership for Farm Family Health and Safety, Inc. was selected to host one of the first 10 Agriculture Safety Days in Warren County in 1996. The South Central AHEC has assisted with this event for many years and is now a co-sponsor along with the Warren County Cooperative Extension Service. Safety topics addressed include but are not limited to fire, water, methamphetamine, chemicals, electrical, tractor, small equipment, ATV, lawn equipment, animal, nutrition, firearms, bicycle, and first aid.

The Progressive Agriculture Foundation supports Agriculture Safety Days in many counties in the South Central AHEC service area. If you are interested in learning more about this program or developing a similar program in your community, please contact the AHEC office at 270-745-3325 or by email at
