Free resources available to help parents, teachers and bosses keep young farmworkers safer
The Healthier Workforce Center of the Midwest is offering free resources to help farm supervisors, parents, and teachers protect teens and young adults working on farms. The resources, which are available in English and Spanish, include online training, classroom training, YouTube videos, and safety posters.
The HWC is a partnership of the University of Iowa’s College of Public Health, Washington University in St. Louis, and the Nebraska Safety Council. It is one of six Total Worker Health Centers of Excellence funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
