Summary:  Workers in the agricultural industry experience multiple hazardous respiratory exposures. It is important to understand these risks and to know the appropriate protective equipment to purchase and use. The female workforce often experiences a challenge finding the right protection with a proper fit. This 30-minute program will address both the risks and the right protective gear.
Intended audience: The primary audience for this program will be agricultural production workers, including female workers, and agricultural business managers
Objectives (Focus areas): At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: 
  • Identify common respiratory exposures that put workers at risk for respiratory illness
  • Recognize appropriate respiratory protection for workers, co-workers, or family members
  • Understand the difference between a respirator and a fabric or paper mask – sorting out the language
  • Access evidence-based information related to respiratory protection
