As farmers harvest fields it is important to keep safety in mind. Iowa Farm Safety and Health Week wraps up today and is coordinated by the National Safety Council while having support from various organizations. Iowans are reminded to cautiously approach field adjustments or repairs, take precautions to avoid slips and falls, make smart decisions while assigning tasks to youth, use and maintain the slow moving vehicle emblem SMV correctly, and retrofit tractors with rollover structures. Motorists should also be aware of slow-moving farm vehicles and approach rural intersections cautiously.
