HOW IT BEGAN?
The National Safe Tractor Program (NSTP) was developed through a collaborative effort involving Penn State University, Ohio State University, and the agricultural division of the National Safety Council.
The NSTP was originally developed and designed for 14and 15yearolds seeking employment in production agriculture. The U.S. Department of Labor's Hazardous Occupations Order in Agriculture regulation prohibits 14 and 15yearolds from operating farm tractors and attached powered equipment unless the youths have successfully completed an approved safe tractor and machinery operation training program
