Do you work outdoors? The Southern Tier Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association and CCE of Broome County are announcing an October 20 program on occupational health and safety for woodlot owners and farmers.

Senior Educator Jim Carrabba from the NY Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) will discuss numerous exposures we all face, including chain saw usage, tractor rollovers (ROPS), pesticide usage, lyme and other tick-borne diseases, etc. Jim will also be available to take related questions from attendees.

After the (NYCAMH) presentation, NYFOA member and Consulting Forester Mike Blasko will discuss current hardwood markets and take your questions on other forestry matters.

This program will take place in the auditorium at Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension, 840 Upper Front Street, Binghamton, NY. Doors will open at 6:00 and the program will begin at 6:30. Under current COVID safety protocols, social distancing and mask-wearing will be required, even for vaccinated attendees.
