Little-known First Aid Tips for Farmers and Tractor Operators

We want to share some excellent first aid tips and processes that can help farmers and tractor operators stay safer and healthier.

If you do not feel that you understand these steps, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic. Also always consult your tractor owner’s manual for model-specific information. For first aid related issues, please contact 911, your physician, or local hospital immediately.

Let’s get started.

First Aid

Farming and agriculture accidents happen.

There are many things that cause them. One thing that is easy to forget is that injuries and medical challenges can arise from non-equipment sources. These include things like cuts, burns, bites, stings, attacks, allergies, and more.

We want to go over some first aid tips, techniques, and processes that will keep you and others safer and healthier when some of these non-equipment injuries come up.

Also bear in mind that many of us think we know basic first aid --- and then an injury arises, and we freeze up and realize we did not know as much as we thought we did.

This is where solid first aid processes are extremely helpful and could be life-saving. Also --- have a cellular phone (with your doctor and hospital numbers programmed in) with you just in case you need to call someone for help.

Time to get started.
