New eLearning series focuses on farm safety

Ohio Farm Bureau’s Cultivating Safe Farm Operations eLearning Safety Series is a new, interactive, engaging and accessible online education program developed for a broad audience of farmers, workers and on-farm youth to make real changes in their farm safety habits.

Vision Statement

Creating a culture of farm safety to eliminate incidents in Ohio’s agricultural community.

Program Overview

In partnership with Ohio State University College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Science’s Ag Safety and Health Program, and Nationwide, Ohio Farm Bureau’s Cultivating Safe Farm Operations eLearning safety series is an interactive online education program. Created with three initial modules, the series was developed to be engaging and accessible to a broad audience of farmers, part time, full time and youth farm workers.

Each of the three initial modules will take learners about 40 minutes to complete, and cover several basic agricultural risks. Each module integrates an assessment into the online platform to assure basic comprehension and help cultivate on-farm behavior modification.

To access the program modules, prospective learners must create an account in Farm Bureau University. The platform is provided in partnership with American Farm Bureau Federation, and includes additional self directed learning opportunities.
