UNL Extension Tractor Safety Classes Offered Across Nebraska

       Nebraska Extension Tractor Safety & Hazardous Occupations Courses will take place at twelve Nebraska locations this year. Teens 14 or 15 years of age who will work on a farm should plan to attend.

       Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from working on a farm for anyone other than parents or legal guardians. Certification received through this course grants an exemption to the law allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and to do field work with specific mechanized equipment.

If you signed up for the Design Decisions project, please watch the following two PowerPoints as an aid to help you before planning out and implementing your design choices.
