BWC Safety Sessions at Shearer Equipment Expo

Farm Bureau again has the opportunity to work with Shearer Equipment at their annual Expo at Fisher Auditorium at the Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center (OARDC), and offer members the ability to fulfill their workers’ compensation safety training obligation by attending specific seminars at the Expo.

Shearer Equipment’s Expo is scheduled as follows:

Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019

Fisher Auditorium (OARDC Campus)

1680 Madison Avenue Wooster, OH

*New this year- breakfast will be available beginning at 8 a.m!* 

Upon arrival at the event, sign in at the Farm Bureau table. Please bring your Farm Bureau membership card and your member ID number with you. This is more effective to ensure you are properly registered than your Workers’ Comp number. At the table you will be given a schedule of qualifying presentations you can attend as well as a form that instructors will initial to have your attendance verified. Return the form to the Farm Bureau table and your requirement fulfillment will be noted and your 2019 completion card will be given to you.
