USMWF is a support group made up of empathetic families who have been there and understand the emotions and questions you may have regarding the loss of your family member. We know and understand the devastation which takes place in the mind, body and soul and we strive to help you and others from having to go through both the grieving process and investigative process alone.
It is important that you know you are not alone.

With the support and funding of AgHealth Central States, Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH) and the Public Welfare Foundation, USMWF has been able to gain awareness to work related incidents and created a presentation regarding Grain Safety. This grain presentation highlights agriculture incidents that forever impacted families across the U.S. due to agriculture incidents. We invite you to review and share this educational tool.
The "Faces Campaign" was launched January 1, 2009 and is intended to give
workplace fatalities a face, gain awareness and educate workers, employees,
organizations and our government.

As young children in preschool or even as a toddler we learn consequences. If a teacher does not do their best to keep the students in their class safe and learning parents and even state officials step in and change policies. Why is it as adults in a workplace our employers not made to keep their workers safe. They can be as simple as protective equipment or extensive training on regulations.
