Invest in Your Health: Cover Up! Head to Toe Personal Protective Equipment (LIVE January 15)
This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults. Agriculture is ranked as one of the most dangerous occupations and involves workers and family members of all ages. Illness and injuries can be prevented if we use the right protective equipment for the job. This program will present an overview of common exposures in farming and ranching and identify appropriate personal protective equipment.
At the conclusion of the program, participants/educators will be able to:
- Review several of the indicators related to use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in agriculture
- Access personal protective (PPE) educational material developed for classroom use
- Select decision making activities from programs designed for classroom time frames
