The Vermont Farm Safety Program provides ways to strengthen and improve your on-farm safety program, including bilingual tools to support your needs.  If your safety program isn’t written down – documented – it doesn’t exist from an OSHA or insurance perspective. Numerous farms that have participated in the farm safety program receive discounts on their workers’ compensation and property insurance premiums.

 

Applications are being accepted now and there is limited space available; contact Louise Waterman at the VT Agency of Agriculture, (802) 828-6900 or Louise.Waterman@state.vt.us for an application or more information.
