Media Guidelines for Agricultural Safety fact sheet in English and French
The agricultural stories we tell in the media can make life safer for farm and ranch families and workers. At the same time, while not intentional, what we write, say, and the images we show, can perpetuate and even increase unsafe farm practices. To help minimize unsafe practices, and so that we can be confident that we are doing our part for farm safety, the Childhood Agricultural Safety Network has compiled do's and dont's for graphics and text.
