“Safe Operation of Farm Tractors: A Basic Overview for Farm Owners and Operators” is an educational video series to help farm tractor operators learn the basics about safe tractor operation. Funded by UW Center for Agriculture & Safety, each of the videos in the nine-part series introduces a tractor safety segment vital to safe operation. This video series in not meant to be a complete safety training program, but rather a guide to the basics of safe farm tractor operation. The videos can also be used a helpful tool for farm owners and managers when teaching family and non-family employees how to be safe on the farm.
