27th Annual Farm Safety Day

The Twenty Seventh Annual Farm Safety Day

Friday, 12 May 2017
Saturday, 13 May 2017

Safe and competent equipment operators are important to you as an employer. Accidents, which cause damage, injury or death to employees, equipment and crops, are costly. We believe all types of accidents can be reduced with proper employee training. Our training has been designed to help your employees perform better, operate safely to prevent accidents, fulfill necessary training requirements and build pride in themselves
and their farm company.

The 2017 Southwest Florida Farm Safety Day is almost here. Farm Safety Day is an educational event designed to emphasize the importance of farm/equipment safety. Each participant is presented with a certificate of attendance and the employer will be provided with a certificate of training that can be placed into the employee’s file.
