Thousands of children are injured and hundreds are killed every year by hazards found on the farm. Some of these children are working on the farm while others wander into trouble on their own or are invited into hazardous areas. Implement injury prevention strategies today to protect agriculture’s greatest resource, our children.

  • Do not allow children to roam freely on the farm. Design a fenced “safe play area.” This area should be near the house and away from work activities.
  • Inspect your farm on a regular basis for hazards that can injure children wandering on your farm. Correct obvious hazards immediately.
  • Children who are physically able to be involved in farm work should be assigned age-appropriate tasks and continually trained to perform them. They should also be constantly supervised.
  • Equip all barns, farm shops, chemical storage areas, livestock pens, etc. with latches that can be locked or secured so that children cannot enter.
  • Always turn equipment off, lower hydraulics and remove the key before leaving equipment unattended.
  • Do not expose children to hazards. Never carry them on tractors and equipment or invite them into the farm shop, livestock barns, grain bins, etc.

Inspection

  • Is there a designated “safe play area?”
  • Are equipment guards in place?
  • Are hazardous work areas locked?
  • Are farm ponds and pits fenced?

Information supplied by the National Safety Council’s Agricultural Division, the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS) – www.necasag.org or 888-844-6322.

Even when you take precautions, a farm can be a dangerous place. Equipment, livestock and other dangers pose risks for families and employees that are not found in other environments. These unique dangers require unique preparation.

The National Ag Safety Database and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension provide this list of items needed to create a farm first aid kit. Most, if not all, of these supplies can be found at the local drug store or are available online. Think about keeping one of these in each vehicle and tractor.

The following is a list of items that should be in a farm first aid kit:

  • A basic first aid manual
  • Two triangular bandages with 36″ sides (made from bed sheets)
  • Spray antiseptic (not a pressurized can)
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Twelve adhesive bandages and four safety pins
  • Two pairs of rubber or latex gloves
  • Eye goggles
  • Three small packages of sugar
  • Mouth protection device for mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
  • Four compress bandages, 2″x2″, 4″x4″
  • 24″x72″ compress
  • Six pressure bandages
  • Gauze bandage
  • Stainless steel bandage scissors (strong enough to cut through denim)
  • One elastic wrap
  • Cold pack
  • Amputation preservation kit (plastic bags: one large garbage bag, four kitchen-sized and two bread bags)
  • Sterile adhesive bandages in assorted sizes
  • Two-inch sterile gauze pads (four to six)
  • Four-inch sterile gauze pads (four to six)
  • Hypoallergenic adhesive tape
  • Two-inch sterile roller bandages (three roles)
  • Three-inch sterile roller bandages (three roles)
  • Splints: ¼ inch thick x 3 inches wide x 12 to 15 inches long
  • Scissors, tweezers, needle
  • Moistened towelettes
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Thermometer
  • Tongue blades (two)
  • Tube of petroleum jelly or other lubricant
  • Assorted sizes of safety pins
  • Cleansing agent/soap
  • Sunscreen
