The 2018 NGFA / MGEA Regional Regulatory Compliance Seminar was held on Tuesday, January 23rd, in Great Falls, MT. This one-day seminar discussed emerging and evolving regulatory issues from OSHA as well as operational, quality, and safety best practices for grain handling facilities.
The weather and government shutdown tried to stop the fun, but thanks to Jess McCluer, the NGFA Vice-President of Safety and Regulatory Affairs, and Jerome Nagengast, the Terminal Trainmaster with BNSF Railway, we powered through the day, learning and having fun the whole time!
Jess McClure educated the group on new OSHA regulations and the Food Safety and Modernization Act.
Jess also covered walking and working surface regulations, grain handling data, and how to work with employees and safety.
He was a great sport and a tremendous speaker. Many thanks to Jess!
Jerome Nagengast, a trainmaster with BNSF, talked about rail safety.
Jerome brought years of real-world experience to the discussion, and talked about fall protection, administrative procedures, and many techniques to use rail equipment safely and efficiently.
He answered many questions with wisdom and experience, and was a very interesting speaker.
And, of course, the breaks and lunch times were perfect opportunities to meet old friends or make new ones.
We hope to see you next time!
