Despite the strides the agricultural industry has taken in developing safer farming practices, farming remains one of the most hazardous industries in the United States. The injuries also occur beyond the confines of the farms and fields. Farmers and ranchers, and the general public are injured when agricultural machinery is involved in roadway incidents. Beginning with Franklin Roosevelt in 1944, the National Safety Council has annually promoted National Farm Safety and Health Week to commemorate the hard work, diligence, and sacrifices of our nation’s farmers and ranchers and to promote public awareness of the need for improved agricultural worker health and safety.
Even though the corporate culture remains dominant in the United States, farming and agriculture remain vital components of the American economy. You can take this opportunity to support the agricultural industry’s efforts and promote better farming practices to ensure their safety with some of ePromos’ promotional products. Raise awareness of this week by handing out promotional travel electronics, logo led flashlights, promotional hand powered radios, and logo hand crank electronics.
