January 2023- Off Job Safety/Agricultural Safety

We started 2023 with A Good Day’s Workhttps://gooddayswork.ag/ sponsoring our lunch.

Our Presenter:  Marty Huseman, Safety Director at Good Day’s Work

We had an insightful session and learned about resources like Gearing up for safety an initiative to bring safety education to agricultural environments, especially the youth population. We shared our experiences of hazardous exposures and accidents outside the worksite and agreed safety practices need to be carried to our homes too.
