All-terrain vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injuries in agriculture in the U.S., so the Agri-Safe Network will offer a webinar to address the situation and possible solutions.

The webinar, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 3 at noon Central Time, will address the differences between recreational and agricultural ATV incidents, identify strategies for elimination or substitution to prevent injury, recognize engineering controls like roll-over protective structures and crush prevention devices, identify personal protective equipment and more.

Presenters on the webinar will be Paul Ayers, PhD and professor of biosystems engineering and soil science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Farzaneh Khorsandi, PhD and assistance safety and health engineering specialist in Cooperative Extension at the University of California, Davis.
