People involved in agriculture recognize safety as a vital concern. For this reason, the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department at Iowa State University has an annual undergraduate course offering safety. Additionally, a similar class was offered for the first time last year as an off-campus program for adult undergraduate and graduate level students. This latter course was conducted using 13 - 2 hour video segments and 2 all-day on-campus sessions. A total of 68 students (ages 22-62) participated in the first class that was offered. This article reports on the experience of teaching an agricultural safety course via videotape.
