    Hearing loss is common, especially among workers who are exposed to hazardous noise where they work. Forestry and Logging are among the top industry sectors for worker exposure to hazardous noise that can contribute to hearing loss. According to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), noise-exposed workers in Forestry and Logging had a higher percentage of hearing loss (21%) than all noise-exposed industries combined (19%). This training will discuss effective methods for preventing hearing loss from noise in forestry.

    Join us for an insightful presentation that delves into the unique challenges faced by aging individuals in rural agricultural communities, where the intersection of substance use and the aging process pose complex problems. We will examine the social, economic, and healthcare factors that contribute to substance use among older adults in the agricultural sector. The specific nuances of rural life that impact substance use patterns will be explored, from the isolation often experienced by farmers to the stressors associated with unpredictable agricultural cycles. We will explore the impact of these factors on mental health and coping mechanisms, leading to a deeper understanding of the prevalence of substance use among the aging population in rural areas. We will also examine interventions and innovative approaches that have proven effective in mitigating substance use issues among the aging population in rural settings. Whether you are a healthcare professional, community leader, or someone interested in the well-being of rural communities, this presentation will provide valuable insights and practical strategies for addressing substance use and promoting healthy aging in the unique context of agricultural life.

    Forestry and logging workers are exposed to a range of biological hazards, extreme weather, accidents, and – especially for women– assault. Workplace violence is violence or the threat of violence against workers. This training will review the many forms of workplace violence among co-workers, including sexual harassment. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) states that “each employer shall furnish to each of his employees’ employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.” In this presentation, AgriSafe will focus on educating forestry employees and their employers on reporting violent incidents to authorities, informing employees of their legal rights, and safe work practices.

    Zoonotic Diseases are transmitted between farm animals and humans and can pose additional risks to those who are pregnant. According to the World Health Organization, more than half of all human pathogens are zoonotic and have represented nearly all emerging pathogens during the past decade. Farmers and farm workers have higher levels of risk for contracting zoonotic diseases because of the frequency of their exposure to animals. Prevention is the best defense. Understanding how the disease transmission process works, building a team and effectively communicating within that team are essential in preventing the spread of zoonotic disease. Women working in agriculture should be aware of the following special considerations during pregnancy, which animals are common carriers of zoonotic disease, symptoms of the disease(s), prevention measures, and pregnancy risks.
