Communicating with Guests

Trail SignMany visitors to farms and ranches have little or no experience with agriculture and the rural environment. Good communication with visitors is vital, if they are to understand the hazards.

Operations that host a group for a single event or require reservations usually have advance notice and can share safety and health information prior to guest arrival.

Other operations are open to the public without reservations and can have visitors arriving throughout the day, making it challenging to convey safety information. In these cases, websites, signs and handouts may be used.
