Clover Safe Notes (click for website) are one page summaries of relevant safety information about specific topics. These notes continue to be developed as additional requests for training on specific topics are needed. Clover Safe notes are purposefully designed for their intended audience of 4-H staff, volunteers and members. Accordingly, Clover Safe notes incorporate a picture or drawing and information about topic-related injuries or illness to provoke the reader's interest followed by a succinct, bulleted or numbered, discussion of precautions to prevent topic-related injuries or illness. They are also concisely written to emphasize the primary safety issues related to the topic and restricted to one page to maintain the reader's attention. Finally, Clover Safe notes are intended to be used while connected to the web site or may be downloaded, printed, and handed out at 4-H activities and project meetings.

Information given in this manual has been developed for use by 4-H volunteers and members and is intended to provide initial guidance for implementing practices and procedures to reduce the risk of sustaining injuries or illnesses while participating in 4-H sponsored programs, projects, and events.
