(20 ILCS 210/11.2)
Farm Safety Course.
The General Assembly finds that numerous
agricultural related accidents occur each year and that often a family member
is the only person able to help in these crises until professional help
arrives. The Department may establish, by January 1, 1996,
a one-year pilot program for a Farm Safety Course to be offered at the Illinois
Fair, to the extent that moneys become available to the Department for that
purpose. The course content may include, but not be limited to, the following:
(1) Procedures useful for prevention of the more
typical agricultural related accidents.
(2) Instruction about the operation of farm
equipment, including how to disengage a piece of equipment.
(3) Basic first aid, especially those procedures most
useful for the temporary treatment of typical agricultural related injuries.
The Director, in
consultation with the Board of State Fair Advisors, may continue the program
beyond one year.
