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.

Many times people don’t think about farm safety until it is too late. Make farm safety another member of your family; talk about it, think about it and be an example. It can save a life and/or a limb.

- Kevin Paap, former Minnesota Farm Bureau President

ASAP Week

Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) Week is held each year at the beginning of March to keep friends and family safe and healthy by recognizing common agricultural hazards. The goals of ASAP Week are:

  • To reduce the number of farm work-related injuries and deaths by increasing safety and health awareness and promoting safe practices
  • To create a promotional toolkit to support safety and health in agricultural and rural communities
  • To increase public awareness of the importance of safety and health in agriculture

Think F.A.S.T.

The Think F.A.S.T. (Farm & Ag Safety Training) program is an initiative from Farm Bureau designed to proactively address on-farm safety concerns for youth. The program materials are free to members and non-members and are tailored for audiences 14- to 17-years old and focus on general safety, leadership, and critical thinking skills applied to technical and agriculture-specific contexts.
