SAIF offers farm safety program in Ontario

SAIF, the state’s workers’ compensation insurer, will offer its annual farm safety seminars at the end of the month.

The free sessions will kick off Monday, Oct. 28, in La Grande followed by a session at the Clarion Inn in Ontario Tuesday, Oct. 29.

The trainings run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and lunch is provided. This year’s seminars will focus on four topics: respiratory personal protective equipment, working at elevation, safety leadership, and incident analysis.

Attendees are encouraged to register by the day before the seminar. Registration forms are available online at saif.com/agseminars. Attendance is first-come, first-served with some locations maxing out.

As of press time, open slots remained in the Ontario seminar.
