2014 Southeast Michigan Agricultural Labor and Farm Safety Meeting

MSU Extension will be hosting the Agricultural Labor and Farm Safety meeting on March 14, 2014, to assist the Ag employer in understanding issues impacting their employees.

Understanding Ag labor issues and complying with Farm Labor Laws has become increasingly more difficult due to the changes in the laws and the numbers of issues facing farm employers.

The morning session will be an update on labor regulations that impact farms, including the H2A program, updates from the Immigration and Citizenship Enforcement Agency, as well as resources from Telamon Corp. and the Michigan Resource Council.

The afternoon will feature “Updating Farm Safety Plans and Training Series: Promoting a Safety and Health Management System for Agriculture” (3 RUP credits).

This meeting will be held at the Lenawee County MSU Extension office (1040 S. Winter Street, Adrian, MI), early registration $30 by February 28 2014, $35 for onsite, includes lunch and materials.
