Five on Friday National Farm Safety and Health Week


Today is the final day of National Farm Safety and Health Week. Agricultural workers face some of the most dangerous workplaces in the country, but clinicians can step up and provide information and resources to help agricultural workers stay safe on the job. Check out some of the great resources from the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center, including their Farm Safety Checklist and their resource database. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has a number of stellar resources to lean on, including their Pesticide Illness and Injury Surveillance page. Here on MCN’s website, you’ll find our Pesticide Exposure Reporting Map, popular downloadable bilingual comics for agricultural workers, like Communicating Safety: English as a Second Language Health and Safety Training Materials. As we glide into the weekend, here are a few more resources shared by MCN staff on the topics of migrant health and health justice. We hope you find these interesting and useful. Have a safe and healthy weekend.
