Class description

The University of Washington is pleased to announce 3 new online, on-demand courses for agricultural communities. The goal of these courses 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 from the Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center and community partners who will cover sexual harassment prevention, dairy safety, heat education and awareness, and pesticide safety. Each course will include lessons learned, practical resources and ready-to use toolkits for assessing, evaluating, and preventing injuries and illnesses on the farm.

This course is part of the Health and Safety Solution in Agriculture Community Engagement Online Course Series. You will be introduced to practical solutions for pesticide exposure and safety solutions, including a review of two pesticide safety solution projects, fluorescent tracer techniques and pesticide drift. Last, you will also be introduced to the Bilingual Pesticide Safety Project. This project is led by members of the PNASH team and will explore two mobile applications within the bilingual pesticide safety project and how you can get involved.
