This year’s theme for National Farm Safety and Health Week, ‘‘Harvesting Safety and Health,’’ encourages those in the agriculture industry to practice and promote safe working conditions and reminds all Americans of the vital contributions of farmers and ranchers to our country. Our farming communities embody the American values of hard work, faith, love of family, and love of country. Their skill and dedication feed, clothe, and provide energy for Americans and others around the world. Agricultural workers face one of the most hazardous work environments in America. Farmers and ranchers operate heavy machinery, work in inclement weather, and tend livestock. Because of these risks, taking safety precautions is vital for agricultural workers. By implementing preventive measures and increasing our knowledge of first aid, we can greatly reduce many hazards of farm and ranch labor. Utilizing safety features and keeping children from working or playing in potentially hazardous areas also can limit injuries and help farmers and ranchers protect their families. Our farmers and ranchers help keep our Nation strong and advance the opportunities that come from freedom. During National Farm Safety and Health Week, we recognize the significant contributions of farmers and ranchers to our Nation and encourage the further development of work environments that will ensure their safety. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 18 through September 24, 2005, as National Farm Safety and Health Week. I call upon the agencies, organizations, and businesses that serve America’s agricultural workers to continue strengthening their commitment to promoting farm safety and health programs. I also urge all Americans to recognize the men and women cultivating our land who contribute to the vitality and prosperity of our Nation.

National Farm Safety and Health Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                As stewards of our natural resources, farmers and 
                ranchers play a crucial role in keeping our Nation 
                strong. This year's theme for National Farm Safety and 
                Health Week, ``Harvesting Safety and Health,'' 
                encourages those in the agriculture industry to 
                practice and promote safe working conditions and 
                reminds all Americans of the vital contributions of 
                farmers and ranchers to our country.

                Our farming communities embody the American values of 
                hard work, faith, love of family, and love of country. 
                Their skill and dedication feed, clothe, and provide 
                energy for Americans and others around the world.

                Agricultural workers face one of the most hazardous 
                work environments in America. Farmers and ranchers 
                operate heavy machinery, work in inclement weather, and 
                tend livestock. Because of these risks, taking safety 
                precautions is vital for agricultural workers. By 
                implementing preventive measures and increasing our 
                knowledge of first aid, we can greatly reduce many 
                hazards of farm and ranch labor. Utilizing safety 
                features and keeping children from working or playing 
                in potentially hazardous areas also can limit injuries 
                and help farmers and ranchers protect their families.

                Our farmers and ranchers help keep our Nation strong 
                and advance the opportunities that come from freedom. 
                During National Farm Safety and Health Week, we 
                recognize the significant contributions of farmers and 
                ranchers to our Nation and encourage the further 
                development of work environments that will ensure their 
                safety.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim September 18 through 
                September 24, 2005, as National Farm Safety and Health 
                Week. I call upon the agencies, organizations, and 
                businesses that serve America's agricultural workers to 
                continue strengthening their commitment to promoting 
                farm safety and health programs. I also urge all 
                Americans to recognize the men and women cultivating 
                our land who contribute to the vitality and prosperity 
                of our Nation.
