Safety First

Agriculture is ranked as one of the most dangerous industries by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which makes farm safety an important topic, particularly during harvest season.
“Safety in general is something that gets taken for granted,” said Peter Bakken, Minnesota Farm Bureau director of promotion and education. “In the rush of the season we typically forget about it even though it should be a priority.”
Bakken is a producer in Rock County who helps promote farm safety through the Minnesota Farm Bureau through things like public service announcements, articles and newspaper advertisements and making safety information available to the public.
