There are big changes happening at Farm Safety for Just Kids in 2013. Starting January 1 the organization will look a lot different. Aside from the new logo and website, farm safety resources will be available to download as PDFs. For free. Including 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. It was time for the 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 our mission to protect rural farm youth and families by getting information out to more people.
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.
