The FREE Gear Up for AG Health and Safety program will be offered over March break on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 to 4-H members between the ages of 14-21 years old.
Gear Up for Ag Health and Safety™ is an interactive program that begins with a student pre-survey. From this survey, the training is customized to deliver agriculture health and safety messages directly related to exposures at work and home. The program will explore local and regional agricultural exposures as well as current health and safety based information. This virtual training session will also cover safety demonstrations on appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Each member who attends the training will receive $75 worth of PPE after completing the program. Trainers will be available virtually on March 17 from 9:30- 10:30 am for respirator fit testing and sizing of chemical gloves to ensure the correct size of equipment is sent out.
