The National Cotton Ginners and the member associations have developed a series of instructional videos to better train and to help keep the gin workplace free of injuries. There has been a recent review of all safety videos for content and relevance. This review has resulted in a number of updates which include entirely new Volumes I &II, and updates to volumes III and IV. Volumes VI and VII are new volumes that are now available. Safety videos can also be viewed online. Please note that in order to view the online videos they require a password. To obtain a password, contact your gin association or the National Cotton Ginners Association at 901-274-9030 .
