One good way to manage safety on the farm is to establish a checklist. The Farm Safety 4 Just Kids program offers the following safety checklist suggestions:

  • Are the keys removed from idle farm equipment?
  • Are riders NOT allowed on tractors, farm machinery and wagons?
  • Are slow moving vehicle (SMV) emblems in place and still reflective?
  • Are power take off (PTO) shields in place on tractors and machinery?
  • Are other safety shields and guards in place on tractors and machinery?
  • Are warning and danger decals prominently displayed on all equipment, including grain-handling equipment?
