Tractor Safety For Waldo County Youth and Adults
Classes begin April 11th and continue on consecutive Wednesday night until May 9th.
The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is again pleased to offer a tractor safety class for youth and adults co-sponsored by Ingraham's Equipment in Knox. This five-week class will begin on April 11th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and will run on consecutive Wednesday nights until the final exam on May 9th.
Tractor and equipment operation on farms can be extremely hazardous. Agricultural related injuries are numerous, and are often serious and even fatal. This training class will help new and experienced operators learn how to operate machinery and develop an attitude of "safety first".
This class is designed for youth ages 14-16 who want to work on farms. Successful completion of this class will earn them a federal employment certificate that will allow them to operate equipment as part of their employment. Many adults also take the class to learn how to operate and handle machinery.
The class is designed to include practice driving as well as in-class learning and home reading activities. The final exam consists of a written exam and a driving exam.
The cost for the materials is $15.00 and includes a revised manual and some safety gear. Pre-registration is required. For more information, and to register, contact Sonia at the Extension Office in Waldo County at 1-800-287-1426. Space is limited, so register soon.
