Course Content Summary

A significant number of accidents occur across the country every year because of the removal of guards on farm equipment. In accidents involving power take-off entanglements, shielding is either absent or damaged in seventy percent of cases. And nearly all incidents involving moving machinery are stationary when incidents occur. That’s why it’s so important workers of all ages and experience levels always follow safe procedure and understand the importance of guards.

This Good Day’s Work video discusses common types of guards seen around the farm and proper procedures for guarding farm equipment. As well as a deeper dive into P-T-O operation and safety, and the importance of lock-out/tag-out procedures.
