Regional Farm Safety Day Planned for April 23

Mark your calendars! There will be a regional Farm Safety Day on Saturday, April 23, at New Virginia Tractor in Orange.

Very fitting for this time of year will be a session on zero-turn mower safety and ATV/RTV safety. Make sure you're navigating your yard and fields with the safest behaviors possible.

Also included will be a tractor rollover prevention seminar, plus a station with representatives of the Motor Carrier division to discuss highway laws and how they pertain to farm vehicles and equipment. Have questions? Get answers from the experts!

Finally, if you employ young farm workers up to age 24, learn how their needs differ from other employees. Safety responsibilities ultimately fall to the farm owner/employer, so attendance at this session will help you think about potential risks that currently exist to your young employees.

Lunch is being provided by New Virginia Tractor, and they will have new product demonstrations as part of their open house event.

Pre-registration is not required. We do hope to see you on April 23rd!
