Ergonomic Safety for Farm Women (LIVE November 19)

It is no secret - women are playing an increased role in production agriculture. They account for about one-third of the management, ownership and work on farms, ranches and in crop production. A major challenge continues to be access to protective equipment that meets the ergonomic needs of women. This program is intended to help women in rural/agricultural communities identify ergonomic issues leading to musculoskeletal injuries in farm and ranch work and discover resources to aid in injury prevention.
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
  1. Identify work site hazards and potential musculoskeletal injuries.
  2. Identify wellness initiatives aimed at reducing risks related to musculoskeletal injuries.
  3. Locate three current evidenced based resources in the field of agricultural health and safety that address ergonomic safety.
  4. Utilize the individual AgHRA to look at current exposures and preventive methods for daily farm tasks.
