Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Program training alternative

Due to the COVID-19 situation it has been necessary to cancel the Mental Health Workers’ Compensation Safety Training session scheduled for March 26, 2020, at the Farm Bureau office in Barnesville. It is not known at this time if the meeting will be rescheduled.  

If you were relying on this meeting to meet the requirements for the Ohio Farm Bureau Workers’ Compensation Group Rating program, please see below for an alternative training. Please contact our office at 740-425-3681 with any questions.

Developed in partnership with Nationwide and Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Science’s Ag Safety and Health Program, the online safety series offers three 40-minute modules for learners and covers several basic agricultural risks. Each module integrates an assessment into the online platform to assure basic comprehension, which will help cultivate on-farm behavior modification. 

To access the modules, prospective learners must create an account through the Farm Bureau University platform, which is provided in partnership with American Farm Bureau Federation and includes additional self-directed learning opportunities. In addition, successful completion of the modules satisfies the annual Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Program safety training requirement for Ohio Farm Bureau members who are participants.
