Nearly 100 agricultural workers are injured on the job every day, resulting in lost time at work, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Farming is one of the most dangerous professions in the United States, and educating farmers on safety is extremely important.
Farm business owners and managers are encouraged to attend an On-Farm Safety class with New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) Thursday, June 21, 2018. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) offers this FREE program from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Hudson Valley Foie Gras on 80 Brooks Road in Ferndale.
Jim Carrabba of NYCAMH will present the importance of chemical safety for managers and their employees on the farm. Wanda V. Cruz, CCESC healthy communities coordinator will offer Spanish language translation and materials in both English and Spanish will be provided.
This class is FREE. Registration can be completed online.
