The kitchen, the car, playing outside, near water – there so many places you need to be safe. And safe practices help you have more fun! The 4-H safety project can be a stand alone project or with other 4-H projects. You will learn to prevent accidents and injuries by recognizing and correcting safety hazards. This project pairs well with food and nutrition, shooting sports, archery, and any animal projects.
The safety project fits with so many 4-H activities – like being safe around large animals or with outdoor activities like shooting sports. But you can even apply safety principles to your everyday activities like cell phone safety or car seats and seat belts. Share what you learn to keep your family and friends safe too!

Farm Safety Day Camps
How can kids learn to stay safe and healthy on a farm? One way is through a safety day camp, a program that teaches 8- to 13-year-olds the basics of farm safety and health. If you’re concerned about the farm safety for kids in your community, this pamphlet will outline how you can organize and run a safety day camp. You’ll learn: why childhood injuries are so common, and how they can be prevented; what jobs kids shouldn’t be taught—and why; how to design a safety day camp that is entertaining and educational.
