Are you managing your risks as a farm employer? The compliance and safety workshopJanuary 11, 2018
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?
