Community Engagement Series: Health and Safety Solutions in Agriculture

University of Washington is pleased to announce an upcoming community engagement lecture series for agricultural communities. The goal of this 4-part series is to share agricultural solutions on a variety of topics that will improve the health and safety of the workforce in the northwest region. The program brings together an expert line-up of research faculty and community partners who will cover sexual harassment prevention, dairy safety, heat education and awareness, and pesticide safety.  Each 90 minute session will include lessons learned, practical resources and ready-to use toolkits for assessing, evaluating, and preventing injuries and illnesses on the farm.

Estara disponible Audio en Espanol.
