Community Hospital-Fairfax Family Medicine Clinics Talk Farm Safety During National Farm Safety and Health Week
As the crops mature and the days become shorter, thoughts turn to harvest and its impact on our communities. Farmers and those employed by businesses supporting agriculture spend long hours in the field or on the road to complete harvest before the snow flies. During these times, health can be the last priority.
That is why Community Hospital-Fairfax Family Medicine Clinics want to remind those involved in the long days of harvest to take time for their health now. Some helpful questions to ask yourself:
The community also has important role to plan in farm safety and health. Watching for traveling farm machinery and allowing extra time to arrive to your destination can reduce risk on the road. Everyone should avoid cell phone usage on the road, especially during this peak traffic time of year.
CH-F Family Medicine Clinics are looking forward to a safe and healthy harvest for our community; however, should the need arise, clinic providers and staff are ready to serve you. Visit www.FairfaxMed.com for contact information for a clinic near you.
