The 15th Annual Agriculture Safety Day events have wrapped up and they kept us on our toes this year! The unpredictable weather throughout the month didn’t hold back safety and health professionals from attending industry specific training. We had quite a few sell out sessions that included Hazard Awareness, Fluorescent Tracer and Farm Safety/First Aid Overview. Based on popular feedback, returning speakers included Israel Gonzalez from IGM, Michael Peterson, Ray Rivas, Garret Corlis, Trooper Daniel Mosqueda and Steven Heist.
Overall we had an increase in Exhibitors this year that joined us in both locations! Honeywell, National Safety and Oxarc continued to help make the prize drawing during lunch a success by donating important safety items for our attendees!
A big THANK YOU goes out to our event sponsors for this year, Washington Farm Bureau, Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) of Washington and BBSI. Their ongoing partnership is vital in ensuring workers return home safe.
