And the winner is…

It is always SAFETY FIRST, you see,
But one day Bill forgot, at Three.
When Alice walked by
And caught his eye
‘Twas a fall and broken nose for he.

A top of our hat to these finals!

There once was a farmer from Centerville
After cleaning the grain bin he felt quite ill
Spouse thought to ask
Did you wear a mask?
The farmer put one on and wears it still

There once was a lab tech so fair,
With beautiful flowing long hair,
She let if flow free,
A hazard you see,
Because parts on machines just don’t care.

Make the play area more fun than the farm
We should never place a child in the way of harm
Like many workplaces, farms are busy and hectic
Dangers and hazards exist, from chemicals to electric
Although farms have a lot of charm, not practicing safety can cost you a leg or an arm

They say safety should be priority number one
That doesn’t mean there is no room for fun
Incidents and injuries can be a pain
And you have to deal with an insurance claim
Until safety is practiced a ton, our job is never done

Children should never play in grain
May past farming incidents teach us and not be in vain
Let’s educate our future generation
And give them the proper foundation
To achieve greatness and none of the blame

here once was a farmer who never used PPE
Who by the end of his days, couldn’t hear or see
His children learned quickly
Lessons to farm more slickly
And that protecting your head to your toes is key

When you practice safety and health
You have a great deal of wealth
A person cannot be replaced
A loss is something that shouldn’t have to be faced
Share your safety and health success, no need to keep it hush and be stealth

A man feared occupational exposure to asbestos
And maybe deadly diseases like ebola or Pestis
He was so distracted by fear
That he didn’t notice that gear
Workers’ comp pays over twenty grand per testis

Her day was not spent in a chair,
She flitted around here and there,
Her attention was naught,
Her hair did get caught,
From then on her head was just bare.
