It’s National Farm Safety and Health Week.
Eric Vanasdale, a Country Insurance Loss Control Supervisor says it’s important for farmers and motorists to be alert as harvest pace picks up and more farm equipment is on the road. “To the people sharing the road with farmers, make sure they slow down as soon as they see a piece of farm equipment,” he says. “Even if they get caught behind a tractor for a few miles it’s going to add thirty seconds to their trip.”
He tells Brownfield it’s also important to have a plan in place for grain bin safety.
