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. In this course you will learn It's everyone's responsibility to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. The toolkit helps everyone understand their roles and responsibilities for preventing harassment by providing education and tools for growers to the supervisors and workers. This course will describe how to maintain a healthy work environment in an agricultural setting. Promoting the dignity and the rights of others is essential to creating and maintaining a positive, healthy, and productive workplace. This course is divided into five key topics and includes case scenarios, interactive activities and videos to help reinforce the core message to show respect for others.
