Free ag safety and health workshops

SAIF's statewide series of free, half-day trainings on agriculture safety and health returns in November.

Designed primarily for people working in agriculture, anyone with an interest in ag safety and health is welcome to attend. (You don't have to be insured by SAIF.)

Employers with small ag businesses who attend the seminar will meet OSHA's instructional requirement, one of four requirements that exempt small agricultural establishments from random OSHA inspections.

What, where, and when 

This year, seminars will be held in 16 Oregon cities: Bandon, Central Point, Clackamas, Corvallis, Eugene, Hermiston, Hillsboro, Hood River, Klamath Falls, La Grande, Madras, Ontario, Salem, The Dalles, Wilsonville, and Woodburn.

Spanish-language seminars will be held in Central Point, Hermiston, Hillsboro, Hood River, Klamath Falls, Salem, The Dalles, Woodburn, and Wilsonville.

The seminars—which begin November 1 in Ontario—are held from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and include lunch.
