NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL FEATURES AG SAFETY VIDEOS
Source: Louisiana Farm Bureau news release

A new YouTube channel provides agricultural safety videos with value for extension agents and educators, agricultural science teachers, producers, owners and operators, first responders and agricultural families.

The U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers channel is a joint project of the 10 agricultural centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Project leader Amanda Wickman of the Southwest Center for Agricultural Health, Injury Prevention and Education says the videos can be used during job orientation, safety and health education, 4-H meetings and classes at the high school and collegiate level.

Wickman adds that the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Healthy established these agricultural centers to protect the safety and health of more than 5.5-million full and part-time contract and seasonal workers in agriculture, forestry and fishing - as well as farm family members.

Videos were created for this purpose by many of the centers - and Wickman says they're trying to enhance the dissemination to people who can benefit most from them.

Allison DeVries of the High Plains Intermountain Center for Agricultural Health and Safety says the YouTube channel provides an inexpensive way to reach millions of people with this important safety and health information.


The YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/USagCenters) launched Friday.
