Are you managing your risks as a farm employer? The compliance and safety workshop

February 7, 2018

Are you managing your risks as a farm employer? The compliance and safety workshop

Are you managing your risks as a farm employer?

This is the workshop that covers the nuts and bolts of risk management as an employer. This workshop will give you resources to help you comply with labor laws and regulations as well as mandated and recommended worker safety training. Representatives from the NYS DOL Ag Labor Program will be invited to present as well as NYCAMH. Participants will leave with an assessment of their farm's exposure to risk from having employees and strategies for reducing that risk. 

Your employees are your most valuable resource. Wages, salaries, and contract labor expenses represent more than 40 percent of the cost of production in labor intensive crops like fruits, vegetables, and nursery products. Can you afford to not improve your skills in managing employees effectively?

This is the fourth of four workshops on Human Resource Management on the Farm.  Sign up for the full series of workshops in Oriskany, NY at a discounted price.

  • November 1 - Marketing your farm as a great place to work
  • December 6 - What is my job? Hiring, training and evaluating employees effectively
  • January 10 - Keeping good staff when money is tight & managing conflict in the workplace
