Agriculture is one of the most dangerous occupations to be part of.  However, without it there would be no food production to sustain the world’s population.  The farm is a place where people live, work, and visit.  A benefit of a Farm Safety Plan is to assist in reducing injuries and fatalities related to agriculture production.  It is also a valuable step towards demonstrating due diligence.
