|According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the federal arm of the government that is charged with the enforcement of health and safety legislation, agriculture is considered a highly hazardous industry. In addition to this, the government regulations designed to improve vineyard safety are always changing. How do we keep current on legislation about vineyard safety? What is the best way to implement safety programs and train workers? This seminar will discuss these issues from the viewpoint of a vineyard safety compliance specialist and vineyard managers who implement safety programs.|
