As the agricultural season is ramping up, now is a great time to think about how to protect the safety and health of adolescent and young adult workers who are at higher risk of injury. A free, evidence-based training developed by the University of Iowa and the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety is available for supervisors, parents, and teachers. Topics include supervising, training, and communicating more effectively with young workers. The training and supplemental materials are available in online and print formats in English and Spanish.
The PUSH online training is a 50-minute, self-paced program that uses videos and real-life examples to teach young workers about safety, communication, and health.
