Each year, Ohio Farm Bureau sponsors educational programs dealing with safety in the agriculture workplace. These programs are important for all Farm Bureau members and workers’ compensation employers in the program.
One very important aspect of reducing workers’ compensation premiums, and to protect our Farm Bureau members, is to reduce the number of claims/accidents we have each year. This can be accomplished by every member doing his or her part to ensure a safe working environment for all employees. To help make these safety seminars more accessible to you, many county Farm Bureaus are sponsoring local meetings. The following are meetings scheduled in your area:
* Tuesday – March 15 at 9 a.m. – Farm Bureau office, 100 Colonel Dr, Barnesville,
Topic – Rural Road Safety – Ohio Highway Patrol
* Tuesday – April 12 at 7 p.m. – Washington County Career Center, 21740 State Route 676, Marietta. Topic – 1st on the Scene and Sun Screening
* Friday – April 15 at 6 p.m – Cassell Station Firehouse, 4500 Peter’s Creek Rd, Cambridge. Topic – to be announced
Your attendance at a county sponsored seminar will meet your requirements as outlined in the agreement to participate in the OFBF Group Rating Program. You are encouraged to bring along your spouse, manager or employees who can benefit from the session.
Please call the county office at 740-425-3681 to make your reservation or if you have any questions.
