Ginners Attend 3-Day Safety Seminar

Nearly 20 ginners gathered at Associated Cotton Growers this week to attend our second Safety Seminar and Powered Industrial Truck Train-the-Trainer course. Ginners from Alabama and Georgia came to Athens, AL and attended a safety course over a three day period. The attendees saw presentations on many topics including engaging employees, hazard and risk recognition, machine guarding, fall protection forklifts, powered industrial trucks and lockout/tagout.

By the end of the course, the attendees were all qualified to train operators of powered industrial trucks (forklifts) and mobile elevated work platforms (scissor lifts and boom lifts). Nearly all of the topics included some classroom and hands on participation.

Our next class is in Greenville, NC May 9-11. More information can be found at
