Many growers are surprised to learn that they must follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. The section of the Code of Federal Regulations that pertains to agriculture is 29 CFR 1928. It is recommended that you look this up and become familiar with it, as it gives you direction as to what you are required to do in regard to safety from OSHA’s viewpoint.
Growers need to develop safety plans for their operations. Since every farm uses different techniques, equipment, chemicals and policies, your safety plan should be unique to your farm and cover all reasonably possible hazards.
