The Nebraska Grain and Feed Association (NeGFA) and the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) have teamed up to provide our members with this special opportunity. At this seminar, you will receive the tools you need to successfully comply with federal and state regulations.
In response to our recent survey, our members stated the number one need they have from their association is help with regulatory matters. This important seminar is our first educational response to that expressed need.
This seminar will include an update on the status of several OSHA regulatory issues, an overview of key Grain Handling Standard components, NGFA guidance documents, and the revised OSHA Hazard Communication Standard. All of this valuable information will be presented by two of our industry’s most noted experts in these matters.
Jess McCluer is NGFA’s director of Safety and Regulatory Affairs. In this capacity, Jess oversees NGFA activities regarding employee safety and industrial health issues. Prior to joining NGFA, Jess spent time in a management role with OSHA.
Jim Maness is president of JEM Consulting. Jim has been involved in safety issues affecting the grain industry for more than 37 years. While on staff with the NGFA, Jim was directly involved in the development of the OSHA grain handling standard. Prior to serving in his consulting role, Jim worked for Bunge North America as their chief safety and compliance officer for nearly 20 years.
You will leave this seminar with the materials and information you need to successfully comply with federal and state regulatory issues.
Members of NeGFA or NGFA are eligible for discounted registration fees. After the first registrant, we have further discounted the registration fees for additional registrations from the same firm so you can send all of your key staff to receive first-hand training in these issues. All registrants will receive an extensive safety and health compliance manual which is included in the registration fee. Also included in the fee is lunch and breaks during the day to further enhance your educational budget.
