Nut Harvest Safety Seminar

Kings County Farm Bureau, in conjunction with our partner organizations, hosts a nut harvest safety seminar each summer.

This free training is directed toward nut commodity harvest equipment operators, crews and farm employees, in conjunction with farm managers/supervisors and growers. Harvest equipment for walnuts, almonds and pistachios is included, and safety materials are provided.

Presentations are made in both English and Spanish, with participants rotating between various sessions on nut harvest safety. Sessions typically include presentations by the CHP on rules of the road to observe when pulling trailers and equipment, a trainer that discusses the Cal-OSHA heat stress standards, and a discussion on the safe operation of nut harvest farm equipment.

Please contact the KCFB office at (559) 584-3557 for the date of this year’s seminar and additional information.
