The office of Engineering Extension at South Dakota State University is offering a 10-hour safety and health course for the ethanol industry.

The two-day workshop includes an outline of OSHA standards, environmental health controls, fire protection, grain handling and conveyor safety, electrical safety, and railroad and materials handling safety.

Program director James Manning said the certified program can reduce insurance rates and lost-time accidents.

It will be held Jan. 20-21 in Brookings.
