The Frontier Extension District will be sponsoring a Hazardous Occupation Training (H.O.T) class June 2nd. This class is required for 14 and 15-year-old youth who plan to operate tractors on farms. The only time a 14 or 15-year-old would be exempt from needing this training, would be if he or she works for their parents on the family farm. This training is required however, if the family’s farm is a partnership, incorporated, or the youth is working on a grandparents’ farm. This training is also required if youth are planning to use lawn mowers or tractors larger than 20 horsepower.
The class will meet Wednesday, June 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Pomona Community Building. The driving and written test will be given off site at a local producer’s farm. Youth will be transported by the instructors to the farm and back to the Pomona Community Building.
Lunch and snacks for the day are sponsored by the Osage County Farm Bureau.
Pre-Registration is required by May 28th.
This program is co-sponsored by Frontier Extension District and Farm Bureau.
