Visit the Safety Zone at Northwest Ag Show

Evaluating MSDS information at 2011 Ag Fair Safety Zone.

The Northwest Ag Show runs next week at the Portland Expo Center. CROET is proud to again be part of the Safety Zone at the event. We appreciate the commitment of the show to sponsor the Safety Zone, made up of interactive displays all relating to safety and health in agriculture.

We know that agriculture ranks among the most hazardous industries. Not only are farmers at risk for fatal and non-fatal injuries and illnesses, but farming is among few industries in which family members are also at risk for injuries and illnesses (see NIOSH Workplace Safety & Health Topics: Agriculture).

In the Safety Zone, representatives of SAIF, Dangerous Decibels, Oregon OSHA, CROET, O[yes], Oregon Park & Recreation and Washington Department of Labor will all share safety and health messages interactively with fair visitors. Join us January 24 – 26 at the Northwest Ag Show to see the latest and greatest in agriculture and renew your commitment to being safe and healthy. See photos from the event on our Facebook page.
