FELS Ag Safety Training Series for Tractor Drivers

This document is available in spanish . (Este documento está disponible en español .)

The FAST Series is divided into four sections. The first section first section provides the safety training material on the topic covered by this FAST Series. The material is presented in both a written form and on an audio cassette tape located in the back of the FAST Series binder. The second section contains handouts which you might find useful in illustrating some of the points contained in the training program. Section three contains a simple exam which can be administered orally or in writing to employees following the program. The last section contains sample training logs to document the training you provide to employees.


First review the material in the first section. Determine if the subjects covered in the material relate to your operation and if additional points should be incorporated into the training program.

Next, present the material to employees at the time of hire or when they are given new job assignments for which training has not previously been received. Additional training is required when new substances, processes, procedures or equipment are introduced to the workplace and represent a new hazard or whenever the employer is made aware of a new or previously unrecognized hazard.

Following the presentation of the material in the FAST Series, present your own subjects that you added to the presentation. At the conclusion of the training program record the names of the employees that attended the presentation on the training logs provided. Make sure you record the date, subject covered and training provider. Keep the log for at least three years.
