Free webinars to offer safety guidelines for young agricultural employees working with grain

AgriSafe Network on Aug. 11 will host the first of two free webinars designed to introduce safety measures for young agricultural workers in the grain industry and educate workers, parents and employers about job safety and hazards. "Stand T.A.L.L." will include instructional materials to help young workers understand what they will need to know about the job, while encouraging them to ask questions if they don’t understand a job task or are uncomfortable performing it.

The Aug. 11 webinar will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. (EDT), with a second webinar scheduled from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 14. The Aug. 11 webinar will "describe hazards commonly seen in the agricultural worksite, introduce the 'Stand T.A.L.L.' materials and explain how and when they may be used to educate young workers, parents and employers." The Sept. 14 webinar will "explore the various components of the curriculum, including PowerPoint presentations, activities, lesson plans, student note pages, handouts, quizzes and more."
