Penn State Partners to Create a National Agriculture Safety Website

Posted: August 21, 2012

Penn State has partnered with other land grant institutions to develop a new farm-safety section for a national agriculture website created by cooperative extension agents. The online resource covers critical agriculture safety questions, such as grain bin entrapments, cattle hauling, ATV safety and confined space hazards.

The website offers easily searchable information by topic, and contains information that all agriculture producers, regardless of experience, can find useful, according to Dennis Murphy, a professor of Agriculture Safety and Health at Penn State.
