The University of Wisconsin Center for Agricultural Safety and Health is awarding over $19,000 in grant money to help sponsor farm safety and health education, training or informational programs. The funds will be awarded for amounts up to $500 per county
with groups securing or providing equal matching funds.
"These grants will help county consortia sponsor programs focusing on farm safety and health prevention efforts," said Ag Safety Specialist Cheryl Skjolaas. "Priority will continue for use with Wisconsin Safe Operation of Tractor and Machinery Certification Programs."
Funds may be used for projects ranging from occupational safety and health training for employees to planning programs on operating agricultural equipment on public highways.
