The National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety (NCCRAHS) strives to enhance the health and safety of all children exposed to hazards associated with agricultural work and rural environments. NCCRAHS projects and research initiatives include a wide variety of topics such as agritourism, safe play areas on farms, and work guidelines for hired youth and youth working on family farms.
Working with a broad group of stakeholders, NCCRAHS staff developed agritourism health and safety guidelines and easy-to-use checklists to help agritourism operators manage health and safety on the farm. Continuing to work with agritourism operators and other stakeholders, NCCRAHS also created the new website, Integrating Safety into Agritourism (www.safeagritourism.com). This website contains a variety of walkthrough scenarios based on different topics (corn mazes, hay rides, animal safety, etc.), to help owners identify health and safety hazards on their operations. The website also provides resources that can be used to fix these hazards. It's a great tool that can be used to help keep visitors safe when they visit farms and ranches.
