6/21/2005

AMES, Iowa -- A farm safety video created by Iowa State University Extension is now available in Spanish.

This hour-long video is a part of the agricultural equipment operators' safety series.  It is available on video or DVD and contains seven segments providing information on the basic steps of safe operation of a tractor and other agricultural equipment. 

“We have a lot of individuals requesting this material in Spanish and there is a need for diversity in our educational materials,” said Chuck Schwab, professor in agricultural and biosystems engineering.  “This widely used video supports the tractor certification program and adds another dimension to help train individuals.”

To purchase the English or Spanish versions of the video, contact Lisa Scarbrough at (515) 294-4972 or lscarb@iastate.edu.  The VHS or DVD is $25, plus shipping.  Cash, check, Visa or MasterCard will be accepted for payment.
