Ag for Life’s Mobile Safety Unit will travel to rural schools, communities, fairs, and other events around North America to educate, encourage and promote farm safety to students and farm families. The Mobile Unit will highlight many hazards faced on the farm such as large equipment, water, grain, overhead powerlines and underground infrastructure and provide educational information around mitigating these and other risks. Modularity will be built into program content so that it can be tailored to various audiences and expanded as needed. Digital applications will be utilized and allow for content sharing with like-minded organizations around the world.
