Stakeholders AMI staff and subcommittee members are collaborating to build a toolkit of training resources for front end loader safety best practices Toolkit will be available for AMI members Designed for mushroom farms and mushroom compost wharf employees Stakeholders include: farm/wharf employee trainers and HR representatives; loader operators; farm/wharf pedestrians; and everyone around them! Current Products

of Toolkit General training PowerPoint designed specifically for loader operators Useful for introducing new loader operators to loader safety Also good for periodically reinforcing safety with seasoned loader operators
