Overview

Like cultivating a crop, cultivating a safe workplace requires commitment and knowing what to do. Oregon OSHA’s most violated agriculture rules include: toilet and hand washing facilities for hand labor work, living areas and site requirements for agricultural labor housing, no safety committees or safety meetings, and no written hazard communication program.
