Tractor Safety Training Required by Law for Teen Farm/Ranch Workers

Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from using specific equipment on a farm unless parents or legal guardians own the farm.  Certification received through a course provided by Nebraska Extension grants an exemption to the law, allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and work with certain mechanized equipment. 

 The most common cause of agricultural-related death in Nebraska is overturned tractors and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).  Employing anyone uncertified under age 16 is a liability risk for farmers if those children operate such equipment.

Home is the place you grow up wanting to leave - and grow old wanting to come back to.

Enrollment deadline is May 1, 2018

Membership Fee $10, payable at the Extension Office (cash or check)
