Napa County Farm BureauSeptember 19th – Napa, CA–The Napa County Farm Bureau is proud to celebrate and acknowledge National Farm Health and Safety Week 2022 (September 18-24) in Napa County.

This annual promotion initiated by the National Safety Council has been proclaimed as such by each sitting U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. National Farm Health and Safety Week is led by the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), the agricultural partner of the National Safety Council. The theme for National Farm Health and Safety Week 2022 is “Protecting Agriculture’s Future”. This theme is one that reminds us that implementing best health and safety practices in the workplace is in everyone’s best interest to advance the future of agriculture not only in Napa County, but throughout the nation. 

In Napa County, as we have progressed through the stages of COVID-19, we have created health and safety practices intended to be longstanding in the agricultural community in order to protect the health and welfare of our workers and ensure that their safety is paramount. The latest recommendations from the CDC, CalOSHA, US Centers for Disease Control and the UC Davis Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety are being implemented by Farm Bureau members across the Napa Valley as long-term best practices in the workplace to mitigate COVID-19 to the greatest extent possible.

Farm Bureau trainings for our agricultural community this year continue to place an emphasis on best safety practices in the workplace.

Additionally, the Napa County Farm Bureau has partnered with the California Department of Food and Agriculture to promote mental health resources to our agricultural community. The California Farmer and Farmworker Stress Assistance Project continues to offer free resources to manage stress and protect the mental and emotional wellness of our farmers and farmworkers. 

Our agricultural community in Napa County continues to do an exemplary job realizing the importance of best health and safety practices in the agricultural sector and works constantly to ensure that ag businesses are successful in their efforts to ensure not only the health and safety of our workers, but our entire Napa County community as well.

We are proud of the commitment our organization, and our community as a whole, has placed on ensuring the health and safety of our ag workers during these challenging times. We acknowledge and celebrate the men and women of Napa County agriculture who continue to work diligently and proudly while serving our community and making Napa County truly world-class.
