Farm Bureau Safety & Health Network


Our Mission

The mission of the Farm Bureau Safety and Health Network is to provide leadership and assistance to local and state Farm Bureaus promoting safety and health in agricultural and rural communities. The network creates open communication channels between Farm Bureau safety and health professionals and volunteers to share resources, programs and initiatives.

Farm Bureaus promote safety and health in agricultural and rural communities to reduce the number of farm work-related injuries and deaths by promoting safe practices and increasing public awareness of the importance of safety and health in agriculture.


American Farm Bureau Federation’s 2024 Ag Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) Week was created to bring awareness to safety and health issues facing the agriculture industry. The U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers are joining American Farm Bureau Federation in keeping friends and family safe and healthy this year by recognizing common agricultural hazards with the theme “Cultivating Safety: Protecting Our Future.”
