Webinar Series

Each and every one of us has been impacted in some way by an accident, injury, or fatality that has occurred on the farm/ranch. These events are devastating to communities and impact the livelihoods of those we know and love dearly. How can communities empower each other to prioritize safety on the farm/ranch?

Emily Krekelberg, Farm Safety & Health Educator with the University of Minnesota Extension, and Angie Johnson, NDSU Extension Farm & Ranch Safety Coordinator, are excited to announce, the Farm Safety Webinar Series in 2021.

The goal of the Farm Safety Webinar Series is to start the conversation of safety as a priority at the farm/ranch level. Alongside with Extension educators and agriculturists, participants develop an awareness and embrace a behavior change to keep safety and health as the number one priority on the farm/ranch.

Starting in January and going through March, five webinars will be provided featuring the following farm/ranch safety topics:

  • Grain Bin Safety – January 21; Recording
  • Tractor & Equipment Safety – February 4; Recording
  • Youth Farm Safety – February 18
  • Livestock Safety – March 4
  • QPR – Question, Persuade, Refer Suicide Prevention Training – March 18

All five webinars will start at 11 a.m. CST. Topics will contain live panelists (including: producers, university specialists, emergency personal, industry experts – just to name a few) from North Dakota and Minnesota.

Panelists will be addressing the topics of: tough conversations; Stop, Think, Act; how to incorporate safety into your operation; understanding age appropriate tasks on the farm; and becoming prepared to help someone who may be contemplating suicide.

This webinar series is for producers, educators, industry representatives, youth, and farm/ranch families.
