Needlestick injuries in agriculture are common although not as recognized as those in human clinical settings. Farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, and on-site workers are susceptible to needlesticks on the job. These injuries can be serious and may require medical attention.

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Be aware of the type of products that livestock producers and veterinarians are exposed to.
  2. Recognize the epidemiologic features associated with needlestick related injuries.
  3. Use and apply preventive practices to reduce needlestick related injuries.
