Each year, for your benefit, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation 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 – large and small.
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:
- Wednesday – March 15 at 9 a.m. – Farm Bureau office, 100 Colonel Dr, Barnesville / Topic – Electrical Safety, South Central Power Company
- Saturday – March 25 at 8 a.m. – Waterford High School-FFA Room, 330 Main St, Waterford. Breakfast will be served. Topic – Risk Management, Nationwide Insurance. If you bring in an old SMV (slow moving vehicle) sign, Washington County Farm Bureau will replace it free of charge! Additional signs will also be available for a cost of $5. Available only at the March 25 safety meeting.
- Friday – April 21 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, 740-425-3681 to make your reservation or if you have any questions. We look forward to your participation.
