Whether you are thinking of starting an agritourism entity or you already operate one, two handy checklists are now available to help you ensure safe and efficient activities when you have visitors on your farm. The National Children’s Center has released both the Policies and Procedures Guide and the Worksite Guide – two downloadable 10-page checklists for agritourism owners and managers, as well as farm owners who host children and groups.
The guides are useful in reviewing health and safety considerations already implemented on agritourism operations, and can assist in identifying deficiencies so that remedial action can be taken. These guides supplement the popular Agritourism Health and Safety Guidelines for Children published in 2007.
The NCC is part of the National Farm Medicine Center at Marshfield Clinic.
