Topics covered at the meeting:
Tractor/Equipment Safety including ROPS

Tractor and Equipment Safety – Hazards with the machinery we use everyday. Tractors are the most hazardous injury agents on farms. This program addresses the top safety concerns, and involves the audience in a little game of reaction time. How fast do you have to be to avoid getting wrapped, caught, or entangled in farm machinery?

OSHA and AG – Busting any myths and learning about safe work practices for the farm and agri-tainment businesses. What rules apply to family farms, youth labor issues, and other management topics are addressed in this program. What considerations need to be made when the public is invited to the farm for agritainment activities?

You will need to bring your workers’ comp ID number so that we can issue you a certificate after the event that will count toward your necessary training.
