Whereas the need for a uniform set of hand signals for agricultural use was expressed at the June 1969 meeting of the National Institute for Farm Safety, Inc., by both Delmar Guard and Will Erwin, and NIFS members encouraged further exploration as to the feasibility of this idea;

Whereas Bill Hufferd, Dick Willsey, and others have done considerable work toward development of a set of hand signals for agricultural use;

Be it therefore resolved ….. that the National Institute for Farm Safety, Inc., commend the Indiana Farm Safety Council and urge its continued work toward development of a set of uniform hand signals for agricultural use for both emergency and directional use when distance, disability, noise, or lack of required visibility prohibit normal voice communication.
