Make time for "Farm Safety"! Harvest season often means putting in long hours, which can make it difficult to stay alert and on the lookout for potential hazards. Make this harvest season a safe one by staying 10 feet away from power lines.
Richard McCracken, Safe Electricity Advisory Board member, advises, “Safety starts with preparation. Be prepared for potential emergencies before the rush of harvest season begins. Have a safety plan, and make sure that farm workers and family members are aware of the procedures in it.”
Be sure that you can see well in the areas where you are working. Consider adding extra lighting around grain bins and augers. Look Up - Be Aware Of Power Lines!
