The U.S. Dept. of Labor declares certain farm occupations too "hazardous" for youth below the age of 16. Tractor driving is included on this list, and these youth are prohibited from working on any farm but their home farm. Certain exemptions are permitted. An exemption is permitted for 14 and 15 year olds if they have successfully completed a basic Tractor Safety Certification Program.
The 2019 Orange County 4-H Tractor Program is open to any Orange County youth who is at least 14 years old; who needs to receive certification to work on a farm this summer; and/or who is looking for a fun, educational experience. Sign up by contacting Eric at 344-1234 or email@example.com or go online (www.cceorangecounty.org) by February 8.
Following is a schedule of meetings and testing. You must attend ALL of these meetings and take the test to be certified.
