Only Two Harvest Safety Classes Left This Year

AgSafe, an agriculture-based safety organization, has developed a food safety training course for produce harvesting. This class will be helpful to everyone in the produce business especially those involved in harvesting specialty crops.  It will give supervisors, foremen, crew leads and field workers basic knowledge regarding sanitation and hygiene principles that are often noted in food safety audits.  The sessions are open to anyone interested in attending.

There are only two more harvest safety classes planned this year.  Are your employees registered?

July 1st                Huron, CA

July 9th                Firebaugh, CA

Sessions last 4 hours and will be conducted in both English and Spanish.  The cost is only $25 per person or $20 per person for groups of 5 or more.  For more information, contact AgSafe at (209) 526-4400 or safeinfo@agsafe.org.

This training is funded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) Specialty Crop Grant Program.
