Ag Safety Group Celebrates National Farm Safety Week by Offering Safety Grants

Ag Safety Group Celebrates National Farm Safety Week by Offering Safety Grants
The Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) announced it will make available approximately a dozen safety grants up to $10,000 to encourage ag safety interventions at the local and regional level.


"With National Farm Safety and Health Week coming up September 20-26, we're excited to announce our third year of safety grants," said ASHCA Chair Leon Graves, who represents Dairy Farmers of America.


ASHCA, a not-for-profit coalition of agribusinesses, producer organizations and safety professionals, has set an application deadline of January 7, 2016. Information regarding eligibility, priorities, application instructions and frequently asked questions is available at www.ashca.org.


"An ideal grant proposal is one that comes from a small company or organization wanting to provide hands-on safety training to ag workers using an evidence-based safety program," Graves said. "The applicant should show a matched contribution from other sponsors and/or in-kind support from safety consultants or trainers."


Priority will be given to:


-- Programs that engage both management and workers in the planning and implementation of successful injury reduction programs.


-- "Hands-on" training initiatives that will increase workers' adoption of proven safety practices and will be sustained beyond the grant period.


-- Initiatives that reach under-served or high-risk populations, e.g., non-English speaking workers.


To see examples of past awards go to http://www.ashca.org/safety-grants-program/. Previous grants have addressed onsite safety training, development of a mobile app, personal protective equipment, safe play zones for farmworker children and other topics.


Individuals, organizations and businesses can support ASHCA's Safety Grants program with financial contributions and/or "in-kind" support.
