Seguridad en la agricultura: eventos programados para febrero en el Este de Washington — regístrese ahora

TUMWATER — La agricultura es una de las industrias más grandes de Washington. Desafortunadamente, continúa teniendo uno de los índices de accidentes más altos. El estado está trabajando para cambiar esto con los próximos eventos de seguridad en el lugar de trabajo dirigidos específicamente a trabajadores y administradores de la industria agrícola.

Para satisfacer las crecientes necesidades de capacitación en seguridad y salud, los eventos del Día de Seguridad en la Agricultura de Washington 2019 se realizarán nuevamente en dos lugares.

Este año, la conferencia en Kennewick se realizará, por primera vez, en el Centro de Convenciones Three Rivers el 5 de febrero. La conferencia regresa al Centro de Convenciones de Wenatchee el 27 de febrero. Las inscripciones para ambos eventos están abiertas en línea. 

Reducir los peligros es importante para los trabajadores y los negocios. Las conferencias de un día promueven la seguridad y salud en el lugar de trabajo.

Los temas que se cubren durante los eventos del Día de Seguridad están dirigidos especialmente a prevenir los peligros que los empleadores y trabajadores agrícolas señalan como los más importantes. La capacitación es co-patrocinada por el Consejo de Seguridad y Salud Industrial del Gobernador y el Departamento de Labor e Industrias (L&I).

La agenda de este año incluye sesiones sobre seguridad al operar vehículos de todo terreno (ATV), seguridad en espacios confinados, protección de máquinas, detección de peligros, prevención de acoso sexual, distracción al volante y más. Muchos de los talleres se ofrecen tanto en inglés como en español. 

Algunas clases califican para obtener créditos para renovar la certificación de la licencia en el manejo de pesticidas. Consulte la página web para registrarse y ver más detalles. También se ofrecerán varias exhibiciones sobre salud y seguridad en casetas educativas, se exhibirán productos y se harán demostraciones.

La inscripción en línea y por adelantado es de $75 por persona o $65 para grupos de cinco o más personas. Los estudiantes y aprendices pagan solo $35. La admisión en la puerta es de $85 por persona. El costo de inscripción incluye la conferencia y un almuerzo en caja.
