Tractor Safety

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

No matter what size tractor you operate, proper safety is key to preventing injury and keeping farmers in the fields!

Whether you’ve been driving tractors for years or are a novice, join us for a hands-on workshop at California University of Pennsylvania’s SAI Farm to review how to safely operate tractors and implements with specialists from Penn State Extension Agriculture Safety & Health.

We’ll discuss how to regularly check fluids, lights, brakes, and tires; how to properly connect various implements; how to safely drive a tractor; and how to conduct a hazards and risks assessment. You’ll have the opportunity to practice what you learn on tractors at SAI Farm.
