May’s Safety Message
Start the Season Right with Safe Tractor Training
Does your 14 or 15 year old youth want to work on a farm? If they are hired to work on a farm or ranch and will operate tractors or machinery, they must complete a Hazardous Occupations Safety Training in Agriculture course. The National Safe Tractor and Machinery Operation Program (NSTMOP) is a national program that is offered locally by county extension educators, high school ag educators and safety professionals.
For more information about NSTMOP, visit www.nstmop.psu.edu, call 814-865-7685 or contact your local Cooperative Extension office.
