Farm Safety for Just Kids Now Offering Farm Safety Resources Online

Blog Post created by Julie Fritsch on Feb 8, 2013

There are big changes happening at Farm Safety for Just Kids in 2013. Starting January 1 farm safety resources will be available to download as PDFs on the website. For free. Resources include lesson plans, activities, background information, fact sheets, Power Point presentations, and more.

A lot of things have changed in agriculture and farm safety over the past 25 years. Farm Safety for Just Kids decided It was time for their organization to reflect that change. Rebranding with a new logo and color scheme provided a natural pause to evaluate how we distribute resources. Offering materials online goes a step further in advancing their mission to protect rural farm youth and families by getting information out to more people.

Beginning January 1, four safety topics will be available electronically: ATV, chemical, tractor, and livestock safety. Each topic includes background information, lesson plans, activities, a Power Point presentation, and more. The ATV and chemical resources are available for download in both English and Spanish. One page fact sheets will be available on a variety of other topics as well.

In the years to come, additional topics and resources will be added in both English and Spanish. Hard copy materials will be available for purchase for those resources not converted to electronic while supplies last.

Call 800-423-5437 to order hard copy materials and visit www.farmsafetyforjustkids.org after January 1 to check out the new site and downloadable resources.
