Tips for Better Agricultural Safety
Here are some practical tips for improving safety in agriculture, encompassing equipment maintenance, employee training, and emergency preparedness. By adhering to these tips, employers and workers can take a proactive approach to create a safer environment for everyone involved.
#1: Create Proper Signs and Labels for Hazardous Areas
Signage and labeling for hazardous areas effectively raise awareness of potential dangers and decrease the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Therefore, they must be visible, easily understood, and utilized uniformly throughout the workplace. They must also indicate the nature of the hazard, the necessary preventive measures, and any access or use limits. Jorgensen Company offers an extensive selection of sign and identification products, including custom options, ensuring that your workplace is safe and in compliance.
#2: Observe Proper Handling, Storage, and Application of Chemicals
Implementing adequate protocols for handling, storing and the application of hazardous chemicals is essential to protect workers frequently exposed to pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides, and fuels. Safety measures must also be taken when handling these substances, such as the usage of proper PPE. Protective coveralls,gloves, eye protection, and respiratory protection are all products to limit worker exposure and promote a culture of safety.
