                Proclamation 9325 of September 18, 2015

                
National Farm Safety and Health Week, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Since the days of our Revolution when farmers across 
                the Colonies took up arms in defense of our country, 
                America's farmers and ranchers have played a critical 
                role in shaping our progress and forging a better 
                future for coming generations. Through centuries of 
                hard work, they have supplied our Nation with products 
                and services essential to the economic and physical 
                well-being of our society. This week, we recognize all 
                those serving on our farms, and we recommit to 
                safeguarding their health and livelihoods.

                Farmers and ranchers make tremendous contributions to 
                the way of life our ancestors fought to establish, yet 
                they face considerable hazards in the course of their 
                daily responsibilities. To protect the safety of those 
                working on America's farms, my Administration has taken 
                steps to guarantee they have the knowledge, tools, and 
                resources necessary to mitigate and reduce risks to 
                themselves and their families. From handling hazardous 
                chemicals and machinery to working in potentially 
                dangerous areas such as silos or grain elevators, our 
                Nation's farmers, ranchers, and farmworkers should be 
                able to secure the prosperity of their land, their 
                loved ones, and their country without sacrificing their 
                own.

                That is why the Federal Government has partnered with 
                farm families, organizations, and businesses to ensure 
                the well-being of those who work on farms. We have 
                strengthened our commitment to those who provide 
                nutrition, clothing, and energy to our people, 
                including by developing nationwide training guidelines 
                that aim to reduce the threats posed to America's next 
                generation of farmers and ranchers. Each year, 
                thousands of people are injured on farms and ranches in 
                America, and I remain committed to pursuing pragmatic, 
                responsible solutions to prevent these tragedies from 
                occurring.

                Across our country, those who work on farms bolster our 
                economy and nourish our people by providing what we 
                need at a most human level, helping to uphold America's 
                founding creed: Out of many, we are one. This week, let 
                us recognize the steadfast dedication and commitment of 
                agricultural producers and their families, and let us 
                reaffirm our resolve to promote their health and 
                safety.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim September 20 through 
                September 26, 2015, as National Farm Safety and Health 
                Week. I call upon the agencies, organizations, 
                businesses, and extension services that serve America's 
                agricultural workers to strengthen their commitment to 
                promoting farm safety and health programs. I also urge 
                Americans to honor our agricultural heritage and 
                express appreciation to our farmers, ranchers, and 
                farmworkers for their contributions to our Nation.
