Farm first aid kits are available to help you stay safe


EAST LANSING, MI. — As a part of national farm safety and health week, the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety has farm first aid kits available for purchase that meet the needs of people working in agriculture. Kits can be placed in tractors, combines, UTV’s farm shops, dairy barns, hog barns, trucks and other strategic places around the farm business. Kits also make good Father’s Day, birthday or Christmas gifts for the farmer who has everything else.

Agriculture, construction and mining rank high among the most hazardous occupations according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. Fall is a particularly hazardous time for agriculture with the rush of fall harvest and shorter days with some inclement weather.

Designed with farm injuries in mind, the kits contain first aid supplies that are useful in an emergency response or for everyday use. Kits include items such as a large scissors/ trauma shears to cut through heavy clothing, large bandages and knuckle bandages for when cuts and scrapes require more than a small adhesive bandage, a thermal blanket to protect the person from the weather, eye wash, instant cold compresses (ice packs), a CPR face shield and much more.  

The farm first aid kits include 114 pieces and costs $50 plus shipping and handling. To order a kit or request a shipping quote, contact Dan Neenan at the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety at 563-557-0354 or 888-644-6322.
