Underwriters Laboratories Makes Generous Donation to Support Farm Safety


Urbandale, Iowa, (AgPR), February 20, 2012 – Underwriters Laboratories announces continued support of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids (FS4JK) in 2012. Underwriters Laboratories is an independent, not-for-profit organization that has been conducting product safety testing and certifications for over a century.
        “Underwriter’s Laboratories’ generous gift will allow us to continue creating educational materials and presentations to teach our youth about the importance of farm safety,” said Dave Schweitz, executive director of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids.
        Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son. The organization works to raise awareness about the health and safety hazards that are an inherent part of the rural environment in which children live, work, and play. Over 120 chapters in the United States and Canada conduct safety and health programs within their communities.
        Thanks to the support of agri-business sponsors like Underwriters Laboratories, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is able to provide their volunteers with up to date and pertinent safety education and demonstration resources.
