Tractor Safety on the Farm

April 5, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Tractors make many of the farming tasks we need to do manageable. Without this mechanical assistance it would be impossible to be as productive or efficient while growing crops. With all of this benefit, though, comes the reality that tractors and tractor implements can be dangerous when not managed appropriately. Whether small or large, proper tractor safety is key to keeping farmers in the fields!

Join PASA and Penn State Extension Ag Safety and Health at the SAI Farm of California University of Pennsylvania for this workshop on tractor safety for farmers and farm managers.
