Jim Larson, Montana Agriculture Safety Program Coordinator
"Last year 126 people died from four-wheeler and side-by-side accidents, seven in Montana," said Jim Larson, Montana Agriculture Safety Program Coordinator. He will be speaking on Thursday morning about safety and state laws for anyone who runs a business so that all may be in compliance. This will help farmers to protect themselves from liability problems and those with volunteers on a ranch or farm. Mr. Larson will also talk about child endangerment and family safety due to the fact that eleven family members died over the past two years due to electrocutions, drowning, and suffocations. He will guide farmers through a safety plan which is required by law.
