Greenhouse and Nursery Regulatory Compliance Workshop

When?

November 19, 2015

9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Lunch is included.

Where?

Constellation Ballroom I,
Holiday Inn, 5701 South Broadway, Tyler

What?

In addition to running an efficient and profitable business, it is imperative that you comply with Texas Department of Agriculture, Worker Protection Safety, and Occupational Safety and Health regulations. Complying with these regulations help keep yourself, your employees, and the environment safe from potential hazards. Non-compliance can result in some hefty fines, in some cases enough fines to run someone out of business!

Make sure you are aware of current compliance regulations and how to stay on top of them. This workshop will feature a current TDA auditor and an AgriLife employee who works with and trains auditors.

Who?

Speakers
Dr. Mark Matocha (Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist, AgriLife Extension, Agricutlural & Environmental Safety Unit)
Mr. Mark Evans (TDA Auditor)

Audience
This workshop is specifically designed for greenhouse ornamental and nursery growers, although some of the material may apply to greenhouse or outdoor vegetable growers, forage growers, and orchards.

Why?

Some of the most influential growers in East Texas considered this to be a great need for the industry and prioritized this program. Some of the growers in East Texas have already faced some large fines and “nightmares”, and would like their fellow industry-people to avoid the same fate.
