Hazardous Occupations Safety Training in Agriculture courses set
Federal law requires youth ages 14 and 15 to participate in a Hazardous Occupations Safety Training in Agriculture and become certified in order to work for anyone other than their parents. To meet this requirement the K-State Research and Extension, River Valley District #4 will conduct two district-wide Hazardous Occupations Safety Trainings in Agriculture (tractor and machinery safety) in May.
The trainings will be:
May 11, 8:30 am. to 4:30 p.m., at the 4-H Building in Belleville, Kan; and
May 18, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Extension Office in Clay Center, Kan.
Youth must register at any River Valley office by May 3. Registration forms are available at the Extension Office or on the River Valley Website, www.rivervalley.ksu.edu. Youth must provide, name, address, date of birth, and contact information at registration time. Youth will be given the manual and assignments upon receipt of registration.
In order to receive the certification, youth must register by the deadline, complete all assignments prior to coming to class, attend either training location (must attend the entire day), pass the written exam, and then must complete a driving requirement after the completion of the class. Once certified, the youth do not have to take the course again.
